TL;DR the reason why there is no hate between any of the workers in my current workplace is we avoid gossip.
I guess the best known part of the bible (the old testament) is its' stories, but the most important part of the bible and in Judaism is Halacha (Jewish law). And one of the most important rules of the Halacha (in my opinion) is the rule forbidding slander and gossip.
what it means in a nutshell, is that a person should not say, imply, signal, or even listen to a bad thing told about another person (even if the bad thing is true, yes it's crazy, I know). Now that I describe what slander is it's pretty obvious why, if everyone is avoiding slander, there is no hate. By not letting any slander or gossip enter the workplace, by not repeating even the details of an incident between 2 co-workes, you're keeping it from evolving and spreading.
How can we achieve it? Honestly, I'm not an expert and my experience is short, but I will be happy to share my own experience from my current workplace. I started working in my current workplace almost 3 years ago.
I made this rule for myself, that any time I would hear slander I say "this is a slander, I'm not accepting what you just said". Even though hearing it might be annoying or even make me somewhat an annoying person in the office, I knew it required gentleness and also an understanding of my co-workers, for me to know when I can say it and to whom and after a while people got familiar with it and even further embraced it.
Today, after almost 3 years I certainly feel the effect this behavior had on our workplace and the unexpected happened when my CEO told me he started spreading this rule of no gossip and slander to his daughters and their friends in school.
After hearing about this article by chance, my previous CTO wanted to share his point of view on the matter:
My name is Snir David and I have been Bnaya’s manager at the said company for several years. One of the most vivid memories I have from my time as Bnaya’s manger is his rule of no gossip.
What started as a funny rule for us, mostly enforced by Bnaya alone, quickly became an office habit. First as a joke, when someone spread gossip or slander around when Bnaya wasn’t present, we repeated Bnaya’s phrase.
From there, the road to have much less gossip and slander than is usual in an office environment was short. This, in my opinion, was one of the cultural building blocks of the company that paid high dividends down the road. Thank you, Bnaya.
