Diversity in the Talent Acquisition Process — A Chicken and Egg Problem?

These behaviors were most often born from bias or lack of awareness. Incivility cost companies and employees time, money, productivity, and turnover—not to mention potential legal costs. Such actions also cost employees distress and even their jobs: 12% of employees who experience incivility in the workplace quit specifically because of the incivility they experienced.
