Take silent resistance seriously
Even in post-corona times, measuring and feeling the ‘real’ workplace temperature will prove to be quite a challenge. Working from home will increasingly become the new normal. As a result, silence will be able to thrive more than ever as a means of individual resistance within work relationships or as a strategy to avoid difficult virtual conversations. A culture of silence tends to reinforce itself. All the more reason nót to ignore the issue of silence. Thus, it is key to timely uncover silence as a strategy with your coworkers or team members and to take silent resistance seriously.
Through the Participation Barometer, we want to find out more about the relationship between employees and employers. Do they assess today’s social climate as being cooperative, and to what extent? Are they sufficiently able to make their voice be heard? When and why is it difficult to engage in conversation with managers? Based on the answers to these questions, we will develop practical recommendations.
