Logic Of The Day: 25.05.2018.
For many people, the office can feel like a second home. After all, you spend the majority of your waking hours there. You probably spend more time with your coworkers than you do with your family. If you’re not happy with your work environment, that dissatisfaction can carry over into your personal life, damaging everything from your self-esteem to your friendships.
Toxic workplaces also can have an impact on your health: the increased stress of working in a dysfunctional office can lead to job burnout, fatigue, and depression.
If any of the above symptoms ring a bell with you, it’s time to take stock of the dysfunction in your workplace in order to evaluate if the situation is fixable — or decide if it’s time to move on with your career.
How can you identify if you’re trapped in a hostile work environment?
Here are seven telling signs you may be working in a toxic office environment:
1. You’re told to feel “lucky you have a job.”
2. Poor communication.
3. Everyone has a bad attitude.
4. There’s always office drama.
5. Dysfunction reigns.
6. You have a tyrannical boss.
7. You feel in your gut something is off.
