Many offices capitalize on the giving spirit around the holidays to encourage employees to support charitable causes.

However, sometimes that can feel like mandated giving with all the public pressure to support the company’s cause.

Our working guy Brandon Smith explains how to gracefully handle this pressure when you don’t want to give.

Brandon Smith teaches about leadership, communication, and workplace culture at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. More of his advice is on his blog and at theworkplacetherapist.com. While you’re there, ask him your workplace or career question. We might use your question on a future radio segment.
