Keeping Negativity Out of the Workplace


Is Negativity Infecting Your Workplace?

Dealing with whiners, pessimists, and other difficult employees

When negative situations arise or even when an employee exudes negativity, the whole workplace absorbs that energy (or lack thereof). Before you know it, efficiency drops with morale, and nothing is getting accomplished. Worse, staff members become dissatisfied with their roles and you may even lose employees who are seeking a more positive working atmosphere. In these worst-case scenario situations, you could find yourself scratching your head, wondering how it all began and what could have been done to stop it.

Learn about diagnosing and combatting negativity in the workplace in this webinar meant for managers and human resources professionals. You’ll discover triggers that can often result in a negative workplace atmosphere, steps to eliminate or soften the blow, and how to regain a sense of normalcy.
