“Almost a third of employees have quit their jobs in the last 12 months due to a toxic workplace”, according to a new report from BreatheHR, our HR technology partner.
The pandemic has intensified the conversation around the pros and cons of remote working, with the statistics highlighting the need to invest in a supportive culture that eradicates feelings of isolation and a breakdown in communication. Key findings include:
- Toxic workplace culture is costing the UK economy £20.2 billion per year
- 9 in 10 SMEs maintained productivity levels despite remote working
- 32% of SME employees say staying motivated and productive over the next 12 months will be their biggest challenge
- Only half of employees are satisfied with their employer’s efforts in maintaining positive remote culture during the pandemic
- Almost a third (27%) of employees quit due to company culture
- Only 25% of employees say mental health support was offered throughout 2020
