Abstract

Purpose

In this paper, the author sought to explain why ethical behavior is the antidote to toxic workplace culture at a time where employees are forced to take their complaints through external channels when internal procedures fall short.

Design/methodology/approach

The author draws upon recent discussions around employer responsibilities in the wake of #MeToo and the Black Lives Matter movements, using relevant case studies to outline where employers have failed to offer adequate protection for their employees.

Findings

The author found that by promoting a healthy speak-up culture within the workplace, employees are more likely to feel that their concerns are heard, and the issues can be dealt with internally, to the benefit of both individuals and their organizations.

Originality/value

HR departments will be able to access the merits of shifting workplace culture to a more transparent model that bridges the trust gap between employees and their organizations.
