Do you have actively disengaged employees, spreading their misery and negativity across your business and trying to damage your brand?
Are their poisonous behaviours leading to low morale and well-being, higher number of health and safety incidents or workplace grievances, and/or higher absenteeism? Maybe you’ve just completed a cultural survey and were shocked at how low the scores were?
Perhaps the toxicity is so bad that your turn-over is at record high levels – which in turn leads to increased costs in time and dollars to recruit and retrain new people. PWC estimate in Australia $3.8 billion is lost in productivity and $385 million in recruitment costs annually due to staff turnover.
And the bad news doesn’t end there. A toxic culture spreads its bad energy out beyond your company walls into the community. Once your Employer Brand is trashed and your company becomes known as a toxic workplace, you will have lost a critical competitive advantage that could have powered your growth.
