In the wake of a heated, post-election season, political conversations often seem inevitable. The strongest organizations are made up of diverse groups of people from many different walks of life. When those varying worldviews all come together to work under one roof, strong opinions and disagreements – especially related to politics – often can emerge.

In this episode of HR Break Room, SPHR, SHRM-SCP and Vice President of HR for Hollywood Casino Baton Rouge, Robin Schooling, joins Caleb and Chelsea to discuss:

  • how to identify and approach politically sensitive conversations or conflicts in the office
  • the role of HR in creating a culture that attracts diverse voices without breeding controversy
  • steps HR and front-line managers can take to create policies and attitudes that prevent these conflicts
