Workplace Lab Podcast- Workplace Lab Podcast: Episode 35 w/Tim Dalhby- From peer to manager (older coworkers) | Communications Gag-order | HR: Friend or Foe?

1024 774 Workplace Lab

Today I am joined again by Tim Dahlby, fellow HR expert, and we answer 3 more of your questions. All of them have a figurative “water cooler conversation” tone to them, so it was fun. Our first question comes from a recently promoted employee who now supervises their coworkers who are a fair bit older than them. We also explore a question about a gag order around talking to other employees about recent job changes. Finally, we answer a question from a weary employee who is not sure how to react to the sudden presence of HR in an adjacent cubicle.

Listen in and don’t forget to send us your questions to contact@workplacelab.org!

We are back with episode 2 of our fall season. Can you feel the autumnal air yet?
