A recent study has found that almost one in four Americans experience chronic anger in the workplace. The study is titled “Workplace Incivility: The Target’s Eye View,” The authors interviewed and surveyed 1,400 workers. The majority of those interviewed, 78 percent, said incivility has worsened in the last 10 years
Those of you who have read my blog for awhile know that I believe there is no room for anger or other destructive emotions in the workplace. Every employee deserves civility in the workplace. What can we do? We can set boundaries with rude people and refuse to tolerate their behavior. If top management supports bad behavior we can think about another place to work. We all deserve a work environment of dignity and integrity.
