Consequences Of Negativity In The Workplace by VirtueDigest: 2:37pm On Nov 08, 2019
Workplace negativity has financial and operational consequences. Workplace negativity may result from a lack of job security, departmental conflicts, high stress levels, or poor working conditions. Negativity can spread from one employee to the next like a virus. Very quickly, many of a company’s employees may begin to exhibit negative behaviors and actions, which can affect productivity and profitability. Employee negativity may also increase customer complaints and employee turnover and decrease the quality of work.

Workers who constantly criticize others, gripe about everything or are argumentative can poison the workplace atmosphere and negatively influence a company’s relationship with its customers. For example, if a customer service representative is rude or condescending to customers, they may issue a formal complaint to management. Because customers can be less forgiving of a bad attitude than a bad product, they may also take their business elsewhere, which can have a major impact on company profits and growth.

Some employees display anger as a means to show power, and they may have tantrums or uncontrollable outbursts in the workplace. Such displays of negativity can drain workplace energy. Worker productivity may drop leading to a financial downturn for the company. In a worst-case scenario, employees may respond to management’s willingness to exhibit or tolerate such behavior by leaving the company and seeking a positive work environment elsewhere. Unfortunately, as Ross Blake writes in “Employee Retention: What Employee Turnover Really Costs Your Company,” it costs a company $3,500 to replace an employee earning $8 per hour for recruiting, training and other costs

Providing daycare in the workplace can have many benefits for companies, including improving employee morale, lowering turnover and attracting a wider variety of applicants. Although providing workplace daycare can be expensive, many companies find that it actually saves money in decreasing employee absenteeism and turnover. Several options exist, from bring-your-baby-to-work programs to on-site daycare and cooperatives between small companies.

Employee Benefits

Improves productivity

In a 2007 survey, Bright Horizons, a provider of employee-sponsored child care, found that 90 percent of parents using a full service, on-site day care center reported increased concentration and productivity on the job. An employee’s attention is on work and not elsewhere.

Helps retain and attract employees

In that same Bright Horizons survey, 23 percent of parents turned down a job change offer or refrained from pursuing employment options due to the benefit of having on-site child care. In addition, 90 percent of new parents stated that on-site day care was a deciding factor in returning to work.


Finding quality child care can be very difficult, thus a workplace option offers parents a chance to meet their personal needs, check on their children throughout the day and work with less separation anxiety. In addition, it allows parents to commute to work with their children and spend lunch and break time together if they choose. This minimizes their time spent apart.

Creates good morale
