WHY DO SOME WORK ENVIRONMENTS BREED TOXIC CULTURES
Introduction
A “toxic” workplace is one in which harmful behaviours are normalized. Katie Bishop (2021) examines the subject of toxic workplaces and discusses steps that may be used to reduce toxic behaviours. Contrary to popular belief, toxic cultures may occur in smaller, less hierarchical businesses. Smaller businesses in the non-profit sector suffer from toxic behaviours due to a lack of resources. The recent naming and shaming of toxic workplaces continue to pressure companies to promote an inclusive and appealing work environment.
RESPONSE SEGMENT 
The number of resources a corporation devotes to toxic signal management will impact the result of toxic workplace cultures. Positive organizational culture requires conscious investment. Toxic behaviours are widespread in overworked environments. When a firm is short-staffed and under-resourced, toxic behaviour is pushed to the back burner. Organizations should endeavour to establish strong behavioural standards and encourage leadership that knows the consequences of their power and exercises it with discretion.
While toxic behaviour by organizations is still frequent since most incidents go undetected, numerous high-profile examples have recently emerged. The public slammed Brewdog and Activision Blizzard CEOs when revelations surfaced that they knew about toxic company behaviour but did nothing about it. Younger workers are less tolerant of toxic attitudes and have been educated to speak out against them, says Emtrain CEO Janine Yancey. A powerful instrument for organizing people and spreading ideas, social media has created a new responsibility structure.
CONCLUSION.
To summarize, toxic behaviours occur in both big and small businesses. With severe rivalry and little accountability, big firms are prone to toxic cultures, whereas smaller organizations are often understaffed and under-resourced, making countering toxic behaviours a low priority. Organizations may combat toxic attitudes by enforcing strict rules of conduct and managing power appropriately. Workplaces may have a brighter future if the younger generation speaks out against toxic behaviours. Finally, social media allows individuals to unite and mobilize behind a cause, offering a new framework for responsibility.
