Yahoo News recently posted an article that was developed in London created by a team of researchers. The study was called “Swearing at work and permissive leadership culture: When anti-social behavior becomes social and incivility is acceptable.” The study states that swearing in the workplace helps staff to better express their feelings as well as develop personal relationships. The study shows that swearing should not be used in a negative or abusive manner, but it is important to allow people to express themselves freely. I think this article shows how the culture is changing. Our views of the workplace are not what they used to be. It is no longer mandatory to speak only when spoken to, or wear a suite and tie every day to work. It has become “casual Friday”, every day.
I thought is was interesting and kinda funny! 🙂
