Workplace incivility

 

Disparaging remarks made a conference table; sarcasm; a back-stabbing co-worker; nasty e-mail messages...While lawsuits and news reports spotlight egregious acts of violence and abuse in the workplace, it's often the subtle things at the office - the painful little incivilities among co-workers or between a supervisor and her/his staff that can take the biggest toll. Just as road rage afflicts the nation's highways, rudeness and bullying are now taking their toll on the nation's workplace. It is often hidden behind closed doors, and rude, impolite behavior is frequently shrugged off by managers. But the on-the-job incivility doesn't just affect those involved indirectly, it can also undermine an organization's effectiveness. Research demonstrates that people cut back on the amount of time they work and reduce their commitment to their job. What does this mean for Human Resources Professionals?

Possible Objectives:

  • To define behaviors that constitute incivility, bullying, and rudeness

  • To state the impact of incivility on the employee and the organization

  • To discuss potential causes of increased incivility in the workplace

  • To list steps the target of the behavior can do to combat incivility

  • To identify appropriate actions the manager/organization should take in incidences of incivility
