It’s a presidential election year and the campaign rhetoric is heating up – and not just among the candidates. Everyone has their own set of values and beliefs, and luckily we live in a country where we’re free to express them. However, just because we have the freedom of speech, it doesn’t necessarily mean we shouldn’t be mindful of where we choose to practice it.
In a recent CareerBuilder poll, 43% of respondents expect to engage in conversations about this year’s presidential election with co-workers. Workers age 55 and older were found to be most likely to discuss politics at work. When broken down by gender, men are not only more likely than women to talk politics in the workplace, but their discussions are also more likely to result in an altercation.
So, as November draws near, we want to know where you stand on talking politics at work. Let us know by voting in our poll.
