Workplace Culture: Eliminate Office Cliques and Embrace an Inclusive, Productive Environment
|Date / Time:
A recent CareerBuilder survey revealed that 43 percent of employees said their workplace was wrought with cliques. In addition, 46 percent of those polled said their bosses were part of a clique with other employees.
At first glance, office cliques may seem like harmless high school antics, but if you consider these statistics, it's clear that such groups may open the door for bias against certain employees. This bias could initiate a lawsuit particularly if the employee passed over for an opportunity due to his exclusion from a clique is a protected class member.
In order to keep your workplace productive and free from the toxic environment cliques can cultivate, it is crucial for you to recognize how office cliques may negatively impact your organization and to be proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- Different types of personalities that inhabit the workplace and why certain personality types may gravitate toward one another - and how you can make that work
- The detrimental effects out-of-control office cliques can generally have on the workplace, including spawning ugly gossip, pitting groups of employees against one another, causing a communication breakdown among groups, increasing job bias and favoritism, and even sparking a hostile work environment
- What the prevalence of cliques may say about the underlying culture of your workplace
Suggestions on ice-breaking activities to help employees who wouldn't normally associate with each other get to know one another
- Tips on how supervisors and managers can establish a collegial way to associate with subordinates that doesn't alienate certain employees or unfairly favor others
- Signs that the cliques in your office have gotten out of control
- Team-building exercises and communication strategies you can use to get groups talking to one another and collaborating so your workplace culture can flourish
In just 90 minutes, learn the best practices for identifying and eliminating cliques in your workplace. Register now risk-free for this informative event for HR professionals and supervisors.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
