There are workplaces in Singapore and even around the world that are indeed too toxic too handle. A toxic place composed of toxic people to work with will not result into a healthy working relationship. In order to identify if your workplace belongs to this category, check out the list below:

  1. Major communication problems. Communication is very important in an office. It may be in different modes relayed from bottom to top or vice versa. Either way, communication applied should be effective and constant. Lack of proper communication and connection among employees can create problems and may result into conflict and misinterpretation. If you do not want difficulties to arise in your workplace, make communication open all the time.

 

  1. Inconsistency in following policies. You can’t force some employees to really follow office policies. That’s the problem. A workplace becomes very toxic if all the people working in it do not know how to follow simple rules and regulations. Usually even the tiniest details are neglected, what more on the general and more important policies? If employees are valued enough and are disciplined accordingly, then problems will not be incurred.

 

  1. Narcissistic leaders. There are different types of leaders. Narcissistic leaders are toxic to work with because they would not listen to your suggestions and contributions. They usually believe that they are the only ones who could solve problems, make creative ideas, and so on. As much as possible, it would be healthier for you to not argue with these types of leaders or better yet you and other employees can file an intervention regarding the said superior.

  1. Seething disgruntlement. One way or another we all experience dissatisfaction with our jobs. Some employees are much more vocal and they often reflect their unhappiness with the level of commitment and work they put in a project or assignment. Unvalued and unhappy employees result into low performance. These people can really be toxic to work with especially if you end up doing their job for them on top of your own responsibilities.

 

  1. Physical and emotional health effects. If your workplace creates that unhealthy and unhappy atmosphere, you might want to evaluate if you’d still want to stay or leave. Don’t put yourself in a situation or don’t strain yourself physically and emotionally by staying in a workplace that you know doesn’t give you the fulfillment and happiness you deserve. If you seldom get sick or if you consistently experience stress and depression, maybe it’s time to find a new job or workplace that could make you feel otherwise.

How long has that resignation letter been sitting in your drawer? Have you ever imagined doing a different job or having a more interesting career? All of us want to be in a job that’s fulfilling, but very few dare to take the leap. If you’re seeking for a little push to finally tender your resignation, here are four reasons to fire you up.

  1. Your Efforts Are No Longer Working Out

You will know it’s time to quit when you have put so much effort on your duties, but still see no improvement. Once you have decided to quit, remember that you are in charge of how to deliver that message to your employer and to the people who deserve to know about it. Family and friends may respond with concerns, but it is your job to come up with plans for your next step.

  1. You Don’t See a Good Future With It

Every job should lead to something: a promotion, an opportunity to learn new things, take on additional responsibilities or tackle new challenges. The future should show some potential to be different from today. Your boss should be able to help you and your co-workers to improve your future, even if—and especially if—that means you will eventually move to a bigger and better opportunity.

  1. It Improves Your Quality of Life

Staying at a job that you no longer find fulfilling can leave you emotionally drained, but walking away from the unhappiness and stress can significantly improve your well-being. According to science, stress and tensions can exacerbate or trigger heart attacks and increase the risk of other diseases. While it’s common to experience financial stress after quitting a job, finding one that you know you love will eventually provide long-term positive effects.

  1. You Feel Like You Don’t Have Purpose

Everyone wants to feel like a part of something significant. Every person likes to feel that they have impact not just on the productivity, but also in other people’s lives. Life is too short to spend on nothing important. It’s a tormenting to go home every single day feeling overworked, but have not accomplished anything meaningful.

Money won’t buy everything—but if you have to work for it, don’t you want your work to pay off more than just the monetary equivalent it provides? Do not let other people determine your future. Go out and find your worth. You will be surprised how financially stable you will become when you find a job that you truly love.
