Today on ABCDEI we talk about victim-blaming, victim-shaming and so much more as it relates to the workplace.
Turn your attention to Simu Liu (the actor who plays “Shang Chi” in the Marvel Studios superhero movie) and how he walked away from Deloitte after a bad experience to become an actor and eventually the first Asian superhero in Hollywood.
“He talked about a job
termination when he used to work at Deloitte and the impact that it
had on him, a decade ago. With the benefit and privilege of
certainly the success he's had since then, but also the passage of
time, how he's reflected on how that journey took him away from a
path or killed a path, let's say, to a life that wasn't for him and
gave him the motivation to live the life he actually wants. I think
he's well on his way to living that, which I think is really
inspirational on a number of planes.”

“What was happening on the customer relationship front, where it's no longer about the company, the story is about the customer, the customer is king, and all of that. That’s what’s happening with employees now. When people are talking about ‘the great resignation’, and why a company needs to treat its talent with respect. And to me, it's not a moment too soon.”
