Topic: Why is transparency in the workplace important? CO-Creators: James Burrows and Rahim Gulamali Why should you listen? Distilled to its essence, transparency in the workplace is about earning your people’s trust by communicating in an open, honest way. When team members feel like their managers or colleagues are people they can count on to tell the full truth, they’re happier and more productive. At Front, we've found that to be true time and time again. The truth may not always be pretty. Being upfront and honest about the challenges you face, the mistakes you’ve made, and what you’ve learned from those missteps show you’re committed to transparency — even if that means ending up with a bit of egg on your face. But people respect honesty, not perfection. This week we look at a practical use case as applied by the leadership team at Rentals United and the lessons learned along the way!
