It can be difficult to admit that you experience toxicity in your work environment. However, statistics suggest that toxicity in the workplace is more common than not. HR Magazine reported that along with education and academia, healthcare organizations produce some of the most highly toxic work environments. Harvard Business Review has even quantified the financial impact of toxicity in the workplace.
Indeed, toxicity in the workplace is a popular topic these days. Yet, most medical practices are doing little to address it because they don’t fully understand its impact. Toxicity in the workplace not only affects the employees and patients, but it can also take a heavy financial toll.
In this webinar, we will identify various forms of toxicity and how it impacts your team, your patients, and your financial bottom line. We will also open up the discussion to attendees to provide an opportunity to share some of the challenges they are facing in their practices.
This webinar is part one of a two-part series.
- Identify how toxicity manifests itself within their individual practice.
- Quantify the potential cost to employees, patients, and the bottom line.
- Define three actions which can initiate the reduction of toxicity in the workplace.
