The impact of a toxic workplace culture
Gallup's 2023 State of the Global Workplace report estimated that low engagement costs the global economy $8.8 trillion. That’s 9% of global GDP. In addition, a study done by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) shows that over the last five years, the cost of turnover because of organizational culture is $223 Billion.
Eighty-two percent of workers would consider quitting their jobs because of a bad manager. Forty-nine percent of American workers have thought about leaving their current organization because of workplace culture. Twenty-five percent of employees who had been treated with incivility admitted to taking their frustrations out on customers.
According to HR Focus, having a ‘‘toxic worker’’ on your team costs $12,489 in ‘‘induced turnover’’ alone, as frustrated co-workers flee. That figure ‘‘does not include other potential costs, such as litigation, regulatory penalty, and reduced employee morale.
According to a report from MIT Sloan Management Review, employees are quitting their jobs in droves because of toxic workplace culture, not low pay. In fact, the report says toxic workplace culture is 10.4 times more likely to contribute to an employee quitting. Also, according to a study from McKinsey and Company, one of every three employees said their return to the workplace had a negative impact on their mental health, and they’re feeling anxious and depressed, .
Going into 2022, the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Work and Well-Being survey found that 79% of employees surveyed experienced work-related stress in the month before the survey. Three in five workers said work-related stress caused them to have a lack of interest, motivation and energy at work. A total of 36% had cognitive weariness, 32% emotional exhaustion and 44% physical fatigue—a 38% jump from 2019.
Impacted the most
“When we talk about toxic workplaces, it is important to define, ‘Toxic for whom?’ The toxicity is often centered around people who have historically been underrepresented or marginalized in the workplace, so that’s historically women, people of color, people from the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities. ~ Ruchika Tulshyan, author of the “Inclusion on Purpose: An Intersectional Approach to Creating a Culture of Belonging at Work.”
