My feeling is that the referenced question is too broad as it provides very little context information and any question about a subject (with next to nothing context) that has an Wikipedia article is probably too broad for a SE site.
I have little experience with Workplace, but I have seen that similar questions are closed on Politics or SO because those communities want more targeted questions.
Why are such broad questions OK for Workplace? They are not that useful as a more targeted questions on the same matter and can be easily used to create a duplicate stigma on other questions.
Note: I have only seen on SO that some offtopic question are locked/closed and a special note specifies that they are kept for historical reasons only and should not be used as a reference about what an on-topic question is.
