Intolerance isn’t just wrong—it’s bad for business.

Today’s workplace thrives on innovation, empowerment, and an open dialogue. But what happens when social discord and discussion seeps into the workplace, bringing with it polarizing views and sometimes intolerance? These trends are affecting the workplace and organizations are working to respond to this atmosphere.

Businesses are challenged to ensure that the workplace enhances employee engagement and capitalizes on employees’ unique differences and experiences, rather than another area of resentment.
