When organizations go through a crisis or change such as a merger or reorganization, gossip is particularly widespread. Organizations are often advised to establish formal policies in order to avoid unwanted gossip. However is gossip not inevitable? And is it always negative? Or may gossip actually strengthen the workplace, for example, by creating a sense of unity? Using specific cases and examples from films, this workshop will give you an overview of the research that has been done on gossip in organizations and describe the mechanisms of gossip when it occurs. Could one use gossip effectively to get ahead or to survive office politics?
