Sensitivity training and the culture of fear (NSFW)

Gavin McInnes talks about being sent to sensitivity training years ago, and what it has done to America’s workplaces.

    The two most productive and happiest places I have ever worked were staffed exclusively by straight, white males, with the exception of the receptionists.

      Strange that I have had the same experience.

      My male white workplace is so bad we’re always expecting black helicopters to land and take us away.Definitely not the CBC.

    Loved that talk from Gavin. He nailed it! There is a culture of fear in the workplace, similar to the atmosphere in 1984 that makes work even more stressful than before. Also agree that humour, even “off colour” humour, does build comradery and that diversity for diversity sake is a weakness in an office. Quick example, the best sports teams are always the ones where everyone is one the same page mentally and believes in the system, not when each player believes his/her individual system is the best, is only out for themselves and their system, or when they jump and cry when they feel the coach discriminated against them. That’s what’s going on in company’s today and they have to spend so much time working out all these diversity issues losing time on just growing and progressing the business.

      In the hotel that I worked at for years the hr department was two women who also did accounts and payroll.
      There were no diversity quotas, partly because of the number of immigrants who already worked there.
      And also because more women than men worked there.
      They didn’t have degrees in hr and they didn’t seek to feather bed because they already had too much to do.
      Each department policed their own rules of etiquette for interacting with staff within and outside of their department.

    I worked in the telecom industry for a number of years. The two things that destroyed more companies were HR departments, and MBA’s. Or as I like to put it pseudo professional assholes.
