Promotion Politics In The Workplace

Promotion Politics In The Workplace

Howard Ross joins Kojo to consider how qualities like gravitas and factors like appearance effect us in, and outside of, the workplace.

Over the course of your career, you'll be hired, evaluated, promoted or passed over based on numerous factors. Some are concrete accomplishments and milestones, like landing a big contract or publishing a groundbreaking study. Others are fuzzier more subjective factors, like attitude, gravitas and appearance. Kojo talks with Howard Ross about the politics of advancement in the workplace.
