BLUFToxic workplaces with drama, chaos and conflict, with low levels of worker engagement, slowly drain enthusiasm and cause unhappy employees who are more likely to resign.
Harvey Deutschendorf writing in FastCompany, identifies the characteristics of toxic organisations; some of these are:

- Allowing No Autonomy over One’s Work-micromanaging doesn’t work.
- One-Size-Fits-All Staff Appreciation-leaders need to know their team.
