Should staff avoid political discussions at work?

Politics has always been a divisive topic in the workplace. As with religion and finances, politics has historically been a conversational faux pas – and it’s easy to see why.

As a team, it’s important that all members feel like they’re on the same page. Chastising a fellow worker for their political beliefs will only serve to drive rifts through the workforce and cause unrest. And the issue is only growing worse; as world politics becomes more divisive and party politics slides further away from the middle and closer to their polar extremes; many workers feel the need to analyse the constant barrage of political news within the workplace.
