The tech sector: fertile ground for workplace activism?
Avid readers of EmploymentLinks will already have seen some of our commentary on workplace activism. In our latest article we talk about how the tech sector in particular might be fertile ground for workplace activism where we have seen high-profile cases of activism in recent years.

With talk of the “great resignation” and ongoing war for talent – and in a sector where competition for talent is already fierce and retention is typically lower than other sectors – the need to embrace activism as part of corporate culture by tech leaders is essential.
