How To Handle Workplace Inequality
Today, the workplace is constantly evolving. This is because of how susceptible businesses are to political, social, and economical influences. This is why it is important for any workplace to constantly review its policies to make sure they are fair to all types of people. However, there are instances where the workplace creates unequal opportunities for people.
Once upon a time I was up for a promotion. It was a big deal and it would have led to an increase in pay and an upgrade in stature. I was competing against someone who, although they excelled at selling more than me, they weren’t good at managing staff which ultimately led to miscommunication and staff being unhappy. Alas, I lost the promotion and a couple of years later she ended up marrying the president of the company—it all served to be true!
In order to avoid workplace inequality as a manager, make sure you treat each one of your workers equally. Avoid criteria that will hinder some and favor others. With the same goals and targets, each and every one of your team members can be given the same opportunities and chances. Make sure that you keep an eye out if anyone is doing better than the others and give him/her special opportunities to excel at work. If you can provide unlimited growth opportunities for your workers, you will be able to avoid workplace inequality as a manager.
