Stop toxic and discontented workers from infecting your company

It only takes a few toxic employees to make a workplace challenging for others. What’s an employer to do to maintain a great workplace for all while dealing properly and effectively with difficult employees? 

In today’s legal environment, employers can’t simply cast off every “difficult” employee or those who have personality clashes with co-workers. Such employees may still be adding great value to your organization.

But quietly tolerating toxic and malcontented employees is just begging for an employment lawsuit, and is guaranteed to lead to low morale and high turnover for your non-toxic workers. Stress to your HR team and managers that ignoring the problem is not a valid solution. 

Some of your competent-but-disruptive people should be terminated, but others simply need feedback, consequences, and follow-through. On October 13, gather your HR and management teams to learn 10 simple strategies for managing the challenges and minimizing the legal risk.
