In corporations around the world, several employees experience the undesirable biases of the ‘good ol’ boy’ system, while the chosen few relish the benefits. Outsiders are unintentionally marginalized, excluded and devalued while those with relationship ties benefit. Connections to the right sponsors who stamp their diamonds with descriptive words like ambitious, talented, proactive, hard-working, detailed-oriented and driven are influencers of favorable opportunities. Tangible evidence infrequently substantiates these perceptions and often takes a back seat to predetermined conclusions. The ‘good ol’ boy’ system impacts organizations negatively at every level, discouraging employee involvement, reducing job satisfaction, hindering productivity, and fracturing trust. Upgrade your company’s antiquated value system and step into the new age, data driven technology and analytics to inspire effectiveness while increasing overall organizational performance.
