Why People Get Away with Being Rude at Work

Don Kluemper, Associate Professor in Management

Harvard Business Review published work by Don KluemperAssociate Professor in Management, entitled “Why people get away with being rude at work” (co-authored with Shannon Taylor – UCF, Matt Bowler – Oklahoma State, and Jonathon Halbesleben – University of Alabama). The study explores further how “Bad behavior at work can have very real consequences. People who experience workplace rudeness, for example, report lower engagement, suffer more mental and physical health problems, and are more likely to burn out and quit their jobs.” Professor Kluemper was also included in an interview on “CBS This Morning” with Daniel Roth, Editor Chief at LinkedIn, discussing workplace rudeness.
