Open Letter to Your Workforce: Conflict in the Middle East
When tragedy strikes, it’s imperative that leaders address their employees and equip them with the tools needed to navigate highly sensitive situations. Yet, all too many leaders are currently struggling to deliver the right message about the horrific events in Israel and Palestine.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has far reaching consequences. Many workers are directly connected to the region, and we’ve already seen an increase in bias and hate in the workplace.
We compiled a templatized open letter to your workforce to address the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its most recent events. Business leaders can use this letter as is, or tweak it to to align more closely with your corporate values. We’ve also included suggested educational resources to share with your employees.
Coming soon: A microlesson called Stop The Hate will also set expectations for employee behavior and serve as a listening tool for the trauma some of your employees are experiencing.
