Managing Difficult and Toxic Employees 2017 (On Demand)


Preventing costly problems in business.

Difficult employees often upset staff and customers and significantly affect the bottom line. While toxic employees are often so destructive that they can lead businesses into bankruptcy with bullying, loss of reputation and theft.

It is estimated that one toxic employee can cost an organization around $100,000 per year, through huge losses of productivity, high staff turnover and theft.

Unfortunately, most businesses do not know what to look for or how to address difficult or toxic employees.

One reason toxic employees are so tough to spot is they are often productive in their roles, despite reducing their coworkers’ productivity.

We will show you the differences between toxic and difficult employees, and exactly how to resolve the situation with minimal losses and stress. In this engaging webinar, find out:

  • How to identify difficult or toxic behaviours in recruitment 
  • Factors that make someone likely to engage in toxic behaviour 
  • The disastrous effects of toxic behaviour in an organisation
