Occupy Wall Street...


A chance of click in the blog directory took me to a blog on "Occupy Wall Street" protest...

Is it just another flash in the pan... or something more? Much is being made of it as on date, but only time will tell as to how it develops, and how far it goes. I for one will be watching and observing these developments with interest, since in my opinion this just could just be a symptom of something else in the wind. I say this because this is really borne out of the overall socio-economic situation that pervades in modern society. Call it the Rich-Poor divide, or a result of the economic woes, or an overall dissatisfaction... call it what you will. The name or the classification is immaterial. What is far more pertinent to me - and by extension all professionals - is the impact on society, organisations and overall conduct.


Protests have been a part of life since the beginning of society, and are nothing new. Protests also cut both ways - they can bring about positive change... then again, they may prove destructive. And that is precisely why organisations will have to pay greater heed to these developments, since they can have far-reaching consequences. That is not to state that you forget business and focus exclusively on the protest, but rather inculcate an internal attitude to engender positive change within themselves so as to become more transparent, more effective. It has to be remembered that organisations are a part of this same society, that the employees are from within the same 99%.
