Civil discourse in the workers compensation industry can at times be a challenge. The adversarial and sometimes acrimonious nature of the work we do doesnt always bring the best out of people.
Still, many people in the industry toil daily to provide necessary services while keeping communications professional and respectful.
Understanding and respecting those with different viewpoints is essential if the system is going to continue to function. Unfortunately, we are being challenged by a broader societal trend.
In this day and age of striving for ever greater diversity, it seems that diversity of thought is the one area that is seeing less tolerance and acceptance than ever before. Especially in the realm of politics and political philosophy.
Personally, I blame social media, which I have often said is anything but social.
