It's the Real Thing: Authenticity at Work

Friday, December 17, 2004
A recent article by Barbara Moses in The Wall Street Journal spoke of the discomfort that many working women feel if they end up being employed by an organization that professes to value its people but that doesn't actually walk the talk when there are dollars and cents involved. "When I was a VP of human resources, all I saw was the compromise of values to get results," said one self-described "corporate refuge" quoted in the article. "What kinds of results are you getting when abuses are overlooked, and when people are completely demoralized?" she added.

According to Moses, women want to be able to be their true selves at work -- to be authentic. They don't want to have to "fake it" in order to appear to be in synch with corporate values that they may not necessarily share.
