Thoughts on Recent Events
Jun 8, 2020
It’s impossible to see what’s happening in the country over the last few weeks and not feel saddened and concerned. The pain, anger and frustration that so many are experiencing should be acknowledged and addressed in a thoughtful way by each one of us. If not, the deep divisions in our society will continue.
As an employee communications company, we’ve been in a unique position to gain a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the importance of diversity, representation and mutual respect in the workplace. While there has been much progress made, we understand that there is still a long way to go.
This past week, we were fortunate to be able to be involved in a week long HR Summer School event, where thousands of industry participants listened, learned and shared information with each other in a very positive, uplifting way. This and many other wonderful, inclusive events that take place every day should remind us that positive change and progress are being made despite all the negativity we are experiencing as a nation. Here at Flimp, we are committed to listening and learning every day as our progress depends on having mutual respect for each other’s history, viewpoints and perspectives.
