The Tallest Poppy - Women in the Workplace

Earlier this year, 1,500 professionals from across Canada – primarily women – participated in an exclusive Canadian HR Reporter research project titled The Tallest Poppy.

The results show that Tall Poppy Syndrome is a real and alarming issue in our workplaces. Nearly nine in 10 professionals have had their achievements undermined.

On Oct. 9, professionals gathered at a special event in downtown Toronto to discuss the results.

Tall Poppy Syndrome occurs when people are attacked, resented, disliked, criticized or cut down because of their achievements and/or success.
