How to Identify Toxic Workplaces
A toxic workplace is when you experience unethical behavior, aggression, exclusion, disrespect, rumors, gossip, gaslighting, blame, punishment, microaggressions, lack of professional development, and more.
Your well-being and health suffer.
How do you avoid toxic workplaces when searching for a new position?
Look for the red flags.
If there aren’t opportunities to grow & learn, that is a red flag.
If the organization has a bad reputation, that is a red flag.
If there is high turnover, that is a red flag.
Each red flag is a hint that you should do more research and ask more questions.
Remember, a dream job is not a dream job if it’s in a toxic workplace.
