Of what they don’t speak in organizations enough?

Taboo topics in organizations how to discuss them, and what to do about them.

September 13, 2019

Riga, Latvia,

The theme of the conference intends to start discussing topics in organizations that bother employees, is not communicated clearly or even is ignored – of what organizations don’t speak enough. Taboo topics in organizations – how to discuss them, and what to do about them?! Quite often there are certain topics that are being discussed in silenced mode, next to vending machines, or in some other informal areas. Sometimes these topics are even ignored, but still, they exist in organizations everyday culture. We feel that openness and clear communication should also be addressed towards different kind of taboo topics in organizations, in order to create a healthier and more productive working environment. The conference will cover actual topics in this area to bring the understanding of key principles to help organizations create an environment that shapes healthy culture, satisfied and productive employees. The conference also intends to give practical tips on how to start discussions in the organization, to break the ice and bring the topics on the surface.
