Ola! Julie here🙋♀️ Has your job got you feeling down? Being the hard worker that you are, I know you deserve to work in a job that empowers and uplifts you – a place you look forward to going to everyday.
Here are 5 signs that you may be working in a toxic environment:
👉Struggling with burnout
Feeling like you’re burning the candle at both ends? Hard work is great, but not at the expense of your wellbeing. If you’re working late, skipping lunch and drowning in tasks, this can really start to increase your stress levels.
Are your colleagues constantly chucking each other under the bus? Does your management team scrutinise you for every little mistake? Mistakes are normal – and it’s important your employer shows understanding and doesn’t come down on you like a ton of bricks when they do occur!
There’s nothing worse than having your boss watch over your every move. Micro-management signals that your boss doesn’t fully trust in your ability. You’ll flourish more when your employer gives you autonomy.
Is gossip constantly spreading around your office? Maybe you feel as though your work has a dog eat dog culture. Either way, you’ll do much better working in an environment where employees show mutual respect.
One of the worst feelings is when your hard work goes unnoticed. It’s as though nobody recognises your accomplishments or values your input. This isn’t a healthy way to work!
Does this sound familiar? If so, you’re not on your own! Although a toxic job can be draining, it’s important you take the steps to move yourself into a more positive working environment.
