Why Employees Don’t Speak Up
My research will help organizations better understand three key issues.
Firstly, why employees actively choose not to tell their leaders about the things they need to hear.
Secondly, how employees get heard and how do we get ideas out of their heads and into the open so that the business can disrupt, innovate and grow.
Thirdly, how in busy distracted workplaces we can make space for open dialogue where people’s contribution is respected and valued.
If we can nail these three things our workplaces become innovative ethical and engaging.
