In recent months, a number of difficult and divisive issues have hit the headlines and have found some echoes in many workplaces. The More in Common ‘Dousing the Flames‘ report has (via focus group research) found a different story.
“Rather than splitting into those who embrace and those who reject change, most people believe that cultural change is a central part of the British story, and something that they embrace. We also found that there is a particular ‘British way’ of doing change, that allows space for people to ask questions, to voice their opinions, and to learn from their mistakes.”
For those who think that culture wars are the inevitable outcome of any period of rapid change, this report provides good grounds for optimism.
