I’m not sure, but I’m hoping that by the time this article is published, the election has come and gone and is nothing but a distant memory so we can look forward to what is to come in 2021 and beyond. This election season has been a long one, dragged out for what feels like years, and there has been no shortage of people loudly voicing their political leanings. Now everyone is entitled to their opinions. However, some might argue there is an appropriate time and place for them.
Conventional wisdom says don’t talk about politics in the workplace. However, an emerging trend this election season seems to show that piece of advice has been thrown out the window. Individuals in the mortgage industry are not only voicing their strong political opinions, but they are doing so very publicly.
Political commentary has leaked beyond the boundaries of personal Facebook profiles and onto profiles often reserved for company promotions, onto company pages and even onto LinkedIn, a social media platform usually reserved solely for professional networking and business endeavors.
