An increase in rudeness in the workplace is taking its toll, and not just on employees. Nearly half of the respondents in a recent poll say they scale back their efforts on the job after being treated in an uncivil manner. In addition, 47-percent have cut the amount of time they put into their work, and 38-percent admit they've "intentionally decreased the quality of their work." Productivity has also been hurt in other ways. Eight out of ten people who've been the recipient of rude behavior say they've "lost work time worrying about the incident," and 63-percent have "lost work time avoiding the offender." Nearly 80-percent add that their commitment to the job declined, and two-thirds say their "performance declined." A quarter admit they took out their frustrations on customers. Meanwhile, 12-percent quit their job over the way they were treated.
