Little is more frustrating in a workplace culture than fearing repercussions for giving honest feedback.This is not about outrageous illegal violations, (because those you must report), or the “moral harassment” France Telecom executives are accused of practicing following multiple employee suicides.
This is about the more subtle egregious acts such as bias, discrimination, inflexibility and disrespect.
Feeling that you cannot freely speak up in any context to offer what you honestly witness and experience without negative consequence is only seconded by offering heartfelt feedback and having leadership nod in agreement, and then do nothing. Ever. To change the situation.
