Emtrain to Unveil Findings from 2020 Workplace Culture Report Tomorrow at From Day One Los AngelesTwo million data points from 30,000 employees reveal the behaviors that contribute to healthy workplaces, and to crises
The report identifies a set of common social dynamics at play in workplaces that can lead to unhealthy environments, harassment, bias, and ethical mishaps if not dealt with effectively. Janine Yancey, Emtrain’s CEO and Founder, will present her team’s analysis of over two million data points from 30,000 employees about the individual employee experience and the range of company cultures they encounter. The report will show how some metrics predict healthy and unhealthy workplace cultures.
She will also explain Emtrain’s Workplace Color Spectrum™ (below), a diagnostic tool that creates a common language and a way to assess workplace behavior.
Some perception metrics include:
- Tribalism (us v. them) and power disparity issues create the highest number of conflicts across all respondents
- 46% of respondents say it would take 1-2 "Yellow" incidents/week for them to disengage/spin out (defined by Emtrain’s Workplace Color Spectrum™, below)
- The highest rated workplace cultures have managers who understand the implications of power disparity and its impact
The report also presents a foundational set of dynamics around respect, inclusion, and ethics that lead to a workplace culture more resistant to bad outcome, and, when issues do arise, enables organizations to address these issues systematically and ‘appropriately.’
The opposite of respect, inclusion and ethics are harassment, bias, and ethical mishaps. The social dynamics that lead to these bad outcomes have historically been opaque to company leaders until they reach crisis level. Legal concerns have kept companies from quantifying these underlying issues, but with modern technology and a data-driven approach, the Emtrain report makes the opaque visible and reveals the situational dynamics that can undermine the best efforts to build healthy workplace cultures. Providing this information to companies can help them better identify and address problematic behavioral dynamics well before they become bad outcomes that affect society, organizations and employees.
The From Day One Los Angeles conference will feature sessions and panels alongside “Decoding and Curing Tricky Culture Issues” that feature diversity and inclusion, HR, and talent development leaders from CAA, Netflix, UCLA, USC, Live Nation, Novartis, and more.
