‘Immoral’ acts cause pulsing veins in UK workplace

Anger
levels in UK workplaces are boiling over because of the bad behaviour of
managers and other workers, the latest evidence shows.

Examples
of this bad behaviour included cheating, stealing or just being “incredibly
loud”.

The
research claims the problem is affecting productivity and causing people to
take time off work with stress or even resign.

The
most common cause of anger was “immoral behaviour” such as lying, stealing or
cheating, although some people complained that managers were exploiting their
position by not doing their jobs properly or regularly turning up late for
work.

Anger
often spilled over into people’s private lives and some workers said they went
home in a bad mood because of something that happened at work.

The
study was presented by occupational psychologist Jill Booth to the British
Psychological Society’s Occupational Psychology Conference in
Stratford-upon-Avon.
