Leave Toxic Environments Behind

“Turnover is fairly low, so evidently there aren’t any problems.”

Don’t rely on turnover to determine when to leave a job. Just because people aren’t leaving, doesn’t mean the environment isn’t toxic.

Some learn to accept it for what it is, while others convince themselves that it’d be worse to leave.

Sometimes toxic workplaces result from how the boss treats their employees.

It can be hard to work in an environment where employees aren’t supportive of one another.

Where there’s no balance between work and life.

Feelings of stress, drama, and disrespect are overwhelming.

Where work has become dreadful and less enjoyable than before.

Before, work was exciting but now as times gone by, there are noticeable red flags.

A red flag like your gut telling you so.

“What you allow is what will continue.”

If thoughts that your work environment is toxic, keep reoccurring, chances are it is. It may be time to figure out why, to alleviate some of the stressors, and make a change.

Your personal well-being should be your first priority.

You know what's best for you.

Just because it’s not working out with this job, doesn’t mean that it won’t work out with another.

Not every job is perfect, and there may be things that you’re willing to compromise, but you want to work in an environment that will make you feel valued.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose,” Dr. Seuss.

While a company is interviewing you, interview the company you’re considering joining. Ask them questions and watch for any red flags.

The best way to escape a toxic workplace is to make sure you never get in one to begin with.
