Avoiding costly culture clashes

Moody people in the office can drain the life out of the room, which can be costly in terms of productivity. According to a Harvard Business School study, letting a toxic employee go quickly can save companies $12,500.

The most important way leaders can avoid hiring a toxic employee is by screening potential candidates for their compatibility with company values. Then, look for ways to positively reinforce and incentivize those values with your team, to develop a culture.

You can also be the positive influence through simple, thoughtful gestures like a sincere “thank you” for ideas and collaboration efforts.
