Behaviors like gossip, stonewalling, belittling, passive aggressiveness, finger-pointing, and hypercriticism are causing unhealthy, unhappy, and unproductive work environments and proving costly to organizations. According to CPP, Inc., conflicts in the workplace cost American businesses billions of dollars. As example, one increased expense is paid leave. Their research found that 25% of workers admitted that conflicts have caused them to call in sick to work at least once.On top of affecting workers negatively, conflicts also cause managers to spend countless hours dealing with it. The Washington Business Journal calculated that managers spend an average of 25-40% of their time dealing with workplace conflict. Doing the math, for a 40 hour a week schedule, that is 43-69 hours per month. Wow!
