A positive and supportive environment at work contributes greatly to employee satisfaction and productivity. When negative employee behavior is not immediately dealt with, however, workplace relationships can quickly become dysfunctional. Because disruptive employee behavior corrodes workplace harmony and can damage business relationships, it is important to identify the most common behaviors that affect productivity.
A 2009 survey by the Society of Human Resources (SHRM) showed that 95% of over employees have encountered problems with disruptive behavior, and at least 35% have issues on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
How do you deal with this negative influence?
Many executives either fail to recognize or fail to know how to handle this type of disruptive individual. With such diverse workforces in every workplace there is plenty of room for misunderstandings, cross words and potential lawsuits caused by these individuals. If you value your team and your career, then we encourage you to be looking for the person that is trying to keep your team from being as cohesive as you want them to be.
The Weston Group provides behavioral experts whenever you have an employee who may be underperforming, creating difficult work situations or putting others at risk. We’ll assign a executive to assist you in identifying specific concerns related to the employee’s behavior, determining the appropriate level of response, and in developing a plan to approach the employee with your concerns. We assign the appropriate executive to meet your organization’s needs depending upon where the level of conflict is at including administration, physicians, middle management or staff level.
