Toxic Workplace Checklist: Diagnose the Symptoms

Toxic Workplace Checklist: Diagnose the Symptoms

Did you know that less than 1/3 (28%) of employees see their organizations having processes in place to mitigate the influence of bias? Or that only 32% of employees feel like they can be their authentic selves at work? Maybe it’s time to see where your company stands when it comes to workplace culture and toxic work environment.

Emtrain’s Workplace Culture Report 2020 identifies the root causes of workplace culture failures. The Workplace Culture Diagnostic employs millions of data points to establish a threshold for unhealthy workplace norms.

The Toxic Workplace Checklist addresses six indicators of cultural health.

  1. Power dynamics
  2. In-groups and Out-groups
  3. Unconscious bias
  4. Social Intelligence
  5. Pre-existing mindsets and behaviors
  6. Organizational norms and practices

The Toxic Workplace Checklist employs Emtrain’s learner questions used in our course material to measure and aggregate employee sentiment about these workplace culture issues. Thanks to Emtrain AI, employees can candidly state how they feel about company culture in relation to specific issues. HR and  Compliance teams can review this data and spot tricky culture issues before they result in an HR (or PR!) nightmare.

We gathered data from Emtrain AI, and neatly packaged it in this checklist so you can test your company for a toxic work environment. The combination of poignant questions and proven data points make this toxic culture checklist your one-stop-shop to quickly spot a culture issue and neatly address it. 

Use the Toxic Workplace Checklist as a reference point to benchmark your company’s organizational and cultural health against the averages we pulled from the Emtrain Workplace Culture Report 2020.
