Your emails are rude and they’re negatively impacting your employees and their partners. I jest, yet that’s the gist of the new study, “The Long Arm of Email Incivility: Transmitted Stress to the Partner and Partner Work Withdrawal” available by clicking here. The authors have found that email often serves as a catalyst for workplace incivility that spills over into people’s home life. So think twice about your language choice before you fire off that next electronic missive.
