Workplace First Aid Needed in Canada

I was listening to the radio today and was pleased to learn that Angus Reid  just released ANOTHER poll on what we Canadians have been up to in our places of employment. 

Unfortunately the news is not good! In fact, these unhealthy work environments are hurting our economy to the tune of 30 BILLION dollars a year.  The results come from an on-line survey of a “representative national sample”. Here’s a few of the findings:

  • More than half of the respondents are fed up with incompetent managers and negative co-workers.
  • More than 2-in-5 are annoyed by hypocrisy, co-workers who whine, poor office communication, gossip, and having to attend meetings that are unproductive!

Happy Reading!


  1. We had a workplace that was being dragged down by gossip, negativity and a work schedule that caused employees to miss out on family time. It wasn’t until we all took responsibility for making a happier workplace that things were able to change.
