What would you consider to be the qualities of a toxic work environment?
A toxic work environment can be extremely demoralizing for the people who work there. What are your thoughts?
There are many scenarios. We have adult bullies, relational aggression, idea thieves, and many people who will take full credit for your hard work. In some work environments threats of violence are possible or have occurred. In addition to these qualities, you can find people who contribute to toxic work environments by slacking off in their assigned duties forcing others to pick up their slack and increasing other people's workloads. Even worse than these things are the bosses who refuse to address these issues when visible or brought to their attention.
A toxic work environment is caused by poor leadership from the boss who changes rules and expectations in the middle of the game.
Also, bickering co-workers with shifting loyalties and alliances. And, of course, gossip.
HMM, it usually has the "GOOD OLE BOY" system, allows violation of Sexual Harassment and other federal policy,doesn't recognize seniority, doesn't reward good work,but always lets you know what you didn't do or did wrong, plays favorites, doesn't allow equal opportunity,doesn't have employee assistance program.
