Overview

Employees acting badly….

Corporate culture is determined by the ratio of good and bad acts of leaders and employees. When the positive, supportive acts significantly outweigh the negative, selfish acts you will end up with a highly engaged culture.

Sadly, there is strong research evidence that negative acts are more impactful than positive ones – some research indicates that one bad act is worth at least three good ones. There are also clear psychological markers of the likelihood of an individual undertaking negative acts.

In organisation psychology research we call these negative acts “counterproductive work behaviours – CWBs” – bullying, theft, ignoring safety rules, etc. SACS has one of the biggest databases in Australia on CWBs – in excess of 15000 people who have admitted to bad deeds in a confidential research setting. What this data tells us is fascinating:

  • How often does this stuff really happen? What gets reported in organisations turns out to be a fraction of what really occurs.
  • Do men and women commit an equal number of bad acts, or are there differences?
  • What are the psychological markers of the likelihood of doing these bad things?
  • Is it possible to identify the risk of these bad behaviours before hiring so that negatives can be minimised?

Join us for a free seminar on this compelling topic and learn how you can identify risks of such behaviour before you hire.
