Empowering Your Employees to Build You Strong!!

Do you really want to build a strong SPEAK UP culture for your employees??  If you seriously do, READ ON — I can help!!

There are a couple of questions to ask yourself:

  • Are you supporting your employees in being comfortable with Speaking Up?
  • Are you providing your employees tool and resources other than your company’s compliance hotline, HR and/or EAP to help them Speak Up effectively?

Interestingly, I was talking to an attorney recently, and she asked me the title of my book, and I told her The Top Five Things to Consider Before Filing an Employee Relation complaint and How to File an Effective Complaint.

Her response was “oh that’s for the employees,” after I said it is for both leaders and employees, she then stated something similar to “do you really think employers want their employees to speak up?”  I had to pause for a moment – and thought “okay, I get it, but had hoped that employers had begun to seriously want to support and empower their employees to speak up to make their workplace a better place!”

This isn’t the first time, I had similar reactions to the title of this book from people before even reading the book; as if it was a tool for employees to use against their employer!!  I found that once someone read it, the response was overwhelmingly that was a good and helpful book!  I then thought I should have titled the book differently because it didn’t seem to reflect the helpful content for employees at all levels in companies.  

Somewhat baffled, even though I should not have been too baffled, being that I worked for large companies for many years in EEO and Employee Relations; nonetheless, I asked myself why would an employer not want to genuinely help their employees Speak Up within the workplace, and why is the initial reaction from leaders and individual contributors  — it’s an Us Against Them, similar to Labor Unions and Management.

I know I typically swim upstream, and in this case, I guess I still am.  It is my hope that we can reshape this reaction and workplace cultures of us against them to we as in team, in the workplace. 

If you are seriously wanting to build a strong SPEAK UP culture, don’t forget your leaders and individual contributors are teams; they are in this thing together, and to provide all of your employees with the tools and resources to ensure they can speak up effectively without having to file a formal or an official complaint.
