Ways to Get a Better Office Environment for Women and Men

by Evil HR Lady on March 22, 2017

We talk a lot about  making the workplace better for women, but the reality is, we should make the workplace better for everyone. Women and men do (generally) have different needs and wants in the workplace, but what benefits one group can benefit others.

Over at The Balance, I identify 5 different things businesses can do to make an office environment:

  1. Increase flexibility
  2. Create set schedules for retail/shift work
  3. Salary openness
  4. Provide management training
  5. Make things equal but not the same.

To learn details on how these things help your workplace achieve gender equality, hop on over to The Balance: 5 Ways to Ensure Gender Equality in Your Workplace.

I suspect that a lot of correspondence regarding workplace concerns may be getting swept under the rug.

Of course, this concern is the workplace environment for men and women. We need to include in this discussion the need for a harmonious workplace and cultural harmony which I see being overlooked as regards religious equality.

Several years ago, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) promulgated a one-sided guideline telling employers and managers how to accommodate Moslems in the workplace (at the cost of accommodating others equally). I have broken the CAIR guideline down and published a guideline for employers and managers that will help them to overcome pitfalls and traps in this sensitive, delicate arena. Many employers have applied the lessons and information contained in ISLAM IN THE WORKPLACE, which is available (email order) from amazon, Barnes & Noble, as well as E-Bay.
