Talk about your office politics! As reported in World at Work’s Workspan Weekly, a recent survey conducted Korn Ferry Hay Group showed that 58% of employees believe that disclosing their political affiliation at work could negatively affect their career.
So, what about internal communications professionals? Do you believe you could damage your career by exposing your political beliefs? Are you a closet conservative or an undercover liberal? If the leaders of your organization proposed a policy prohibiting the discussion of politics in the workplace, would you support it? If you’re a consultant, could disclosure of your political beliefs to clients and potential clients cost you business?
