Workplace Activism: Are you Ready?

Workplace activism isn’t a new concept, but one which has been amplified in recent times by social movements and the circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is increasingly becoming a defining feature of the workplace. With a heightened awareness of workplace rights, along with changes in technologies, social media and workplace communication channels, employees can become activists within their workplaces very quickly.

Our Linklaters Employment & Incentives team are advising businesses on these types of issues, as organisations respond to, manage and pre-empt legal risk, and have to adapt to changing societal expectations and the evolving mindsets of their workforces.

In the short video below, you can watch Nicola Rabson and Jillian Naylor in conversation, where they discuss what workplace activism is, and what this means for businesses.

You can also visit our dedicated web page to find out more about Workplace Activism as a concept, and access key resources and materials from the Employment & Incentives team. If you would like to speak to a member of the team about these issues, do get in touch.
