Through today’s article, I thought to bring to your attention a rather controversial premise of organizations, namely, workplace transparency.
Transparency is a premise which involves assuming responsibility.
The culture of trust occurs when leaders encourage transparency at work.
Becoming transparent can be a slow but sure process which consists in encouraging the exchange of information, which will result in a culture of trust based on transparency.
But what benefits does transparency bring to the workplace?
- A healthy, happy and constructive workplace in which relationships develop in an authentic way, teams are easier to build, alignment occurs naturally;
- An increased autonomy, which improves the overall motivation and efficiency of the organization;
- A positive control because transparency improves self-control.
Workplace transparency is defined by job security, career advancement opportunities for employees, prediction, and loyalty for leaders.
Delivering the truth in all its forms (information, feedback) and on all levels, organizations can be objectively assessed and can quickly adapt to current dynamic contexts.
Are you transparent at your workplace?
I do not know what answer will give each of you to this question, but it is certain that the answers will be subjective.
However, we need to be aware that workplace transparency is a gift we make to our colleagues, being a proof of confidence and involvement. As we like to meet people of value, let’s try to be some valuable people.
Being transparent means above all to be generous with anyone, non-discriminatory, and to transmit that we are good people that transparency does not vulnerable them in any way. Therefore, let’ not hesitate to prove transparency at our workplace in order to bring value to the society we live in.
Workplace transparency is a value that makes us more powerful people.
