Employee Activism - Influence and Action

The Mobilizing Effect of COVID-19 and the Social Justice Conversation

In many ways, we have reached a point of reckoning with regard to employee activism. Over the last few years, employees have expected more and more from their employers, joining together to demand they take public positions – and action – on critical issues, from climate change and equal pay to immigration and human rights. 

Key Takeaways

  1. Employees are critical to the success of every organization. Companies need to work more closely with their employees and give them opportunities to influence decisions and actions.

  2. Employee activism and action have become more far-reaching in recent years. Younger employees in particular expect their employers to speak out and act on critical global cultural and political issues.

  3. Employee activism does not need to be as large as a full-scale walkout or protest to warrant serious consideration.
