7 Myths About Speaking Up [June 2022 Gift]

We humans are really good at talking ourselves out of potentially big-deal stuff. 

“I’m probably not qualified to apply for my dream job.”

“That cutie from the coffee shop won’t be interested in going out with me, anyway.”

“Nobody will ever publish my compliance-officer-turned-superspy fanfiction.”

Add to the list: “Nothing will ever happen if I speak up.” 

Misconceptions are everywhere, y’all, and the truth is, within your company, employees hold misconceptions about your helpline that keep them from reporting. 🤐

Buuuuuuuut you can bust those myths with… 

Broadcat’s 7 myths about speaking up (and the truth) infographic! 

It tackles seven common misbeliefs from “My company probably already knows about [insert potential problem here]” to “My job will be negatively affected if I speak up.”

This is an image of the halfsie for the June free gift!

Plus, sharing a fact for every falsehood will ease those speak-up anxieties by addressing the most common concerns one-by-one.

Are you hearing other funky things through the grapevine? 🍇

We’ve covered the most common concerns in this free gift, but rumor has it that some companies have other issues specific to them, like...

* “I’m not a full-time employee, so what I say won’t matter.”
* “Our organization doesn’t care about what remote teams have to say.”
* “No one will understand my concern, so there’s no point in using the helpline.” 

See? That’s why this infographic is fully editable so it's 100% applicable to your company! You can add any misconceptions you want to the list or tweak what’s already thereto match whatever your folks need more clarity on.
