The Reason People Leave their Boss and Not their Job: Interactional Justice

An Inclusive organisation is a fair organisation

But Fair is not just one thing

A useful way to think about fairness is Interactional Justice

It’s an inclusion issue that you’ve never heard of

But it explains why  people leave their Boss and not their job

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re going to be talking about the importance of Interactional justice

In todays show we discuss several things including:

  • The Importance Of Interactional Justice
  • Two Types of Interactional Justice
  • How Manners are related to Justice and much more

Here’s some of what I share in the show:

Interactional Justice  is about people not just procedures

“When we talk about interactional justice, it’s useful not to think in terms of procedures, it’s useful to think in terms of people.Are people treated fairly by other people? More specifically, how are people behaving?”

Interactional Justice is about how people are treated

“Think of interactional justice as a way of describing the interactions between those who have power and those who do not. Interactional justice is determined by the behavior of supervisors, managers, leaders”

Interactional justice explains why people leave their jobs

“Have you ever heard the phrase, people don’t leave an organisation, they leave their Boss?  That can be explained by a lack of interactional justice”
