Advice on dealing with rumors at the workplace

Workplace aggression is a specific type of aggression which occurs in the workplace. Workplace aggression can include a wide range of behaviors, ranging from verbal acts (e.g., insulting someone or spreading rumors) to physical attacks (e.g., punching or slapping). Verbal abuse in the workplace may be elusive and what bothers one person may not bother another (i.e. spreading rumors or making insinuations, telling objectionable jokes, and teasing). Unlike sexual harassment and racial discrimination, verbal abuse at work is not illegal, so it rarely makes its way into company policy manuals. Access to technology which makes it easy to spread rumors, share private images, and send harassing texts among coworkers, has contributed to creating a cyberbullying problem in the workplace. Cyberbullying behavior can humiliate victims and interfere with workplace productivity. That said, dealing with difficult personalities in the workplace can really take a toll on one's health and well-being, as well as on the entire company or organization. If you've ever dealt with a particularly difficult coworker, you may have found yourself avoiding that person at work, perhaps changing your schedule or taking a different ... Some people spread rumors as a way to intimidate others and gain status or popularity. But spreading rumors as a way to turn people against someone is a form of bullying — and it can have serious consequences for the person doing it. Spreading unkind gossip in person or online is not a decent or ... The dead giveaway that you're dealing with serial gossipers is this: If you find them gossiping about others, you can bet that they will be gossiping about you as well. Don't give them ammunition ... You can help to make a workplace become more positive by not "fuelling the fire" and joining in negative politics. For example, avoid passing on rumors without taking time to carefully consider their source, credibility and impact. And don't rely on confidentiality. Workplace harassment, whether verbal or physical, based on sex, religion, or race, is unlawful and a form of discrimination. The definition of harassment can vary among states. A Florida court deemed "fat jokes" offensive, and in Wisconsin and New York, it's illegal to harass employees based on their criminal record. Communicate: Dispel Rumors and Reduce Potential Contagion In the aftermath of a suicide, some vulnerable individuals in the workplace may be at risk for responding to the suicide by attempting their own suicide. This is also known as a contagion effect. In other Here are eight ways to manage change in the workplace effectively. 1. Have a Plan. Change is essential for businesses to grow, expand, and thrive. However, change for change’s sake is foolhardy, disruptive, and likely inefficient. Planning for change is a key step.

2021.10.19 20:44 ThrowRAsomerumors Advice on dealing with rumors at the workplace

Lately I’ve been having a lot of managers (shifts & assistants all in their 20s) at work come to me telling me about things they’ve heard about me, asking if it’s true.
They said they heard that I dated one of the male shift managers, if I like any of them, or saying they heard that I smoke. And none of this is true, it’s just that recently it seems to be that I find something supposedly about me.
I don’t want to create drama, but it kind of is getting out of hand. With people thinking I’m smoking or dating around. I’m worried that one day it’ll be something that can get me written up for. And I don’t even know who is starting it.

2021.10.19 20:44 LuckyLuckierLuckest Advice in Choosing Funds

Advice in Choosing Funds Data: 55 Retired USA
This is about half of my IRA portfolio to be a revenue generator from 60 years old on(105). Current targets support an annual yield of $35,600 about 7%.
Still have opportunity to grow value and will adjust toward yield as my age progresses. What that looks like is still a mystery. Have the other half of this IRA to sandbox and invest in the general market.
I have identified 20 funds that interest me, and I know that I am duplicating efforts with some of them; I need help simplifying my approach.
Perhaps I should ask: Which 5 holdings should I dump? Which holdings should I adjust amounts?

2021.10.19 20:44 Noodlenoodle88 In-line Duct Fans/Booster Troubleshooting

I recently bought a house with a few fans inside the ductwork. There are three I’ve found with a push-button/twist L/R switch on the duct itself, then two light switches that are labeled as “master bedroom additional air” (something like that) on the wall.
One of the push button switches turns on a fan, but I think this fan goes to a basement room which probably doesn’t need additional air flow. The other two buttons don’t do anything regardless of whether they’re turned all the way to the left or right, pushed in, fully out, and regardless of what position the labeled light switches are in.
Are these fans likely dead? Do I just need to replace them? Is that difficult?

2021.10.19 20:44 seaniewalsh What dual spec would you want for your main?

Even if I don't expect we ever see them, this game world sure does lend itself to some awesome dual spec combinations.
For instance, while I think WAR would naturally get a melee DPS dual spec, the other tanks very reasonably would not. Healing for PLD, Caster for DRK, and most excitingly for me ranged DPS for GNB all seem totally in line.
For me, my main is RDM and I'm a sucker for the "battle mage" concept, so I'd love see some melee DPS action up in here. Maybe a reverse concept of the standard rotation where you stay in the melee for the bulk of the rotation and jump out of the fray to unleash some epic spells. Maybe with lots of unique 2 hit combos that play off the W|B mana elements.
Whats says you? What interesting or unique dual spec combos can you imagine in FFXIV?

2021.10.19 20:44 iiDaBomb 18M [Friendship] looking for some long-term friends :)

I’m trying to find some new people to become long-term friends with. Online only is a-okay.
I’m an introvert when you first get to know me but as time goes on and I get comfortable with you, I turn into a goofy, high energy dude.
I like working on cars, reading, hiking, playing games, biking, and a lot more. If i don’t know anything about your interests I’m open to learn.
I’d consider myself to have a bubbly personality and to be a very approachable person.
I’m not a big fan of stuff like anime, or people that are super dry in conversation.
Send me some fun-facts about you :). I’d love to get to know everything you like, life-experiences, etc. We can get to know each other through natural conversation, or by asking each other questions. I don’t mind regardless.
