Several workers have opinions to make regarding their workplaces; however, they fail to voice them for fear of reprisal. This behavior typically keeps essential data hidden from those who structure and make necessary decisions within the institution. Voicing opinions in an appropriate way is likely to increase the profile of an employee and enhance the general morale of an employee (Kelliher & Anderson, 2010). Therefore, if a persona gives out a personal opinion and the company disagrees with it, there is no need to take action against the employee as it is lawfully allowed to submit a personal opinion. If the company does not agree with the idea, then there are other proper ways of dealing with the situation but not necessarily punishing or taking any action against the worker. Personal opinions might turn out positive towards meeting the set institutional goals and objective; hence, should be reviewed through the use of proper channels and stages.
