Working with thoroughly disagreeable, even dysfunctional co-workers


A disagreeable and dysfunctional coworker is a curse for any employee. Such negatively oriented employees are a thorn in the flesh and can adversely affect the morale in the organization. It is true that even the most sober and best behaved employee can get nasty at times, but this is not the same as a disagreeable and dysfunctional employee, who not only does it all the time, but revels in this kind of behavior.

The dysfunctional employee is out to annoy, irritate, and hurt others. Such an employee has no sense of rules and etiquettes that most others in the organization adhere to and respect. They are puerile and touchy. They completely lack the professionalism and grace that one expects of an average employee in any organization.

This makes it very difficult for organizations to deal with such employees. It is always a challenge for HR to get such employees to mend their ways; yet, the responsibility of bringing such employees in line with the organization is an imperative for HR and the rest of the management.

How do organization achieve this?
