Toxic Employees and the Workplace

Duration: 3 hours
Max Participants: 15

Everyone knows who they are. When you close your eyes at night you can still see them.

They:

  • gossip and are relentlessly negative;
  • blame others and are never accountable;
  • resist and ultimately prevent change;
  • are emotionally volatile and are constantly in the centre of conflict; and
  • consistently raise problems of the past.

In the end their cost is seen in workers’ compensation claims, litigation claims (such as unfair dismissal) and the effect on co-workers can be devastating.

This session will explain how to deal with challenging and toxic people to change their behaviour and if recurring, discipline/terminate their employment.
