Toxic employees can poison a department, demoralize a team, and ultimately infect the entire workforce.

Their toxic, venomous spew is counter-productive, a morale killer, and it can breed resentment and become a roadblock to effective communication and collaboration.

Many managers feel frustrated and helpless when confronted with employees who complain, criticize, or try to stir up trouble.  In fact, they often assume that there’s no way to change these "toxic employee attitudes,” so they just do their best to contain the damage.

But tolerating such harmful behaviors is definitely NOT the smartest strategy.
