The Interchange | Navigating Difficult Conversations
There are major issues with how we talk to one another:
- Forty-three percent of job seekers under 45 think texting is a professional way for recruiters to communicate with talent.
- Twenty-six percent of people feel pressured to respond to work communication outside of work hours.
- Americans spend 26 minutes a day texting and send 5.3 more texts than the number of calls they make.
It’s clear that we as a workforce are avoiding deep, meaningful conversations with one another because frankly, they’re tough. Especially when issues that need to be addressed are constantly being ignored.
