Toxic Work Environments Are Realizing the Pain

I am seeing more press on the “Great Resignation,” an event long overdue and evidence of just the way workplaces have been. 

Let me tell you some of the experiences I had in the workplace starting from 1985:  

I was aggressively intimidated at a job.

I experienced unwanted touching, forced to work as a bouncer when I was an editor, and intimidated with kicks to my face at my third job.

I was verbally threatened with no boundaries to that threat by an executive director at my fourth job.

I was physically yelled at and intimidated, I was slapped on my back to a degree of assault, I was poked, and had a supervisor show up at my house without invitation at my fifth job.

I was sent a pornographic video, and told I didn’t have any value by a superior at my sixth job.

I was physically threatened at a seventh job.

I was physically struck in the chest at my eighth job, as well as yelled at on three occasions.

I am one individual.  Can you imagine all the other situations and circumstances that occurred which would make for a toxic work environment? 

For too long employers have expected employees to always be desperate.  News alert:  Employees are human beings with their own personal finances.  If those finances can last long enough to carry them to a better work situation, it is their right to do that. 

What arrogance on the part of employers!  I am not surprised in the least because it has been allowed to occur over the years.  The nation made employers the priority in the economic equation starting with the need for money by people, and an individual trading their time for that money; and ending with the government receiving taxes on the money earned. 

What was overlooked was the treatment of employees in those work situations.  Now, there is a window of opportunity to change the quality of a person’s life (employee) by working their situations on their own. 

And working it they are.  Bravo! 

Employers—you MUST CHANGE.  Become human…you’re no different than the employees beneath you.   

Take a recent cue from the head of Bumble.  There are other examples I am sure. 

The time has come to stop destroying your human resources capital.
