Rude Work Emails Are Bad For Your Health And On The Rise – Here’s What You Need To Know

Rude Work Emails Can Affect One's Health

A recent study by Zhenyu Yuan, Assistant Professor of Managerial Studies, has been gaining coverage including WBBM News Radio, Daily Mail, Forbes, Psychology Today and World Economic Forum. “People may have a tendency to revisit a disturbing email or constantly check for a response that they requested, which may only aggravate the distress of email rudeness,” said Professor Yuan. Instead, he says, the solution requires willpower. Employees need to ‘psychologically detach’ after a day of electronic incivility. But this is not a battle workers should be fighting alone.”
