Rudest workplace behaviours revealed

Eight in ten have directly experienced rudeness in the workplace, with 54% of employees citing being sworn at as the rudest form of behaviour, according to new research from Hyper Recruitment Solutions (HRS).

Being reprimanded in front of your peers (48%), talking over counterparts in a meeting (44%) and personal remarks about outfit choices (42%) were also cited as other forms of insolent behaviour. But this research didn’t solely focus on rudeness aimed to towards the employees themselves.
