The effects of a toxic workplace culture can be devastating. This can cause your team’s morale, productivity, and your company’s bottom line to suffer as a result. The Human Resources experts at Saudi Technologies can help you understand what creates a toxic work culture and how to avoid it altogether.
Some common signs that you have a toxic workplace include:
- High turnover
- Bad communication
- Reports of harassment and bullying
- Excessive gossip
- Disrespect towards leadership
Even more difficult for your employees is that the toxic culture often spills over into their personal lives, creating even more anxiety and depression.
So what causes a toxic workplace?
Sometimes it can be the fault of the boss, but ultimately it’s a failure of a group to speak up when someone has a bad attitude or makes an inappropriate remark making their colleagues feel uncomfortable. This is why leaders must preach values over purely profit-driven results.

Recognize Top Talent
Taking the time to recognize your employees who are already doing their part to create a positive work environment is a big step towards positively influencing other employees to buy into a better culture. It’s important to reward any team members who are going above and beyond to make your company a better place.
Lead By Example
It all starts with the CEO setting an example for the rest of the organization and helping your employees understand how they will further succeed if they work together to eliminate toxic behaviour.
