Save The Future: How Strong Communities At Work Matter
Not so long ago, the BBC published an article about corporate culture with this pull quote: “Many employees thrive in high-pressure work environments. But ruthless cultures can poison the well, eroding well-being and ultimately driving out workers.”
In a world where corporations can sack their workforce on the fly, it’s not surprising that the “Great Resignation” is a real problem many companies are facing. According to an analysis of 1.4 million reviews on Glassdoor, toxic workplaces—where employees are pitted against each other—were ranked the No. 1 reason for resignations from U.S. companies last year.

From the negative thoughts that these environments create to the physical and mental impact—namely a lack of productivity—a toxic culture will inevitably directly impact the health of individuals within an organization.
