Do you run into pettiness every day? Have you ever had to deal with employees engaging in petty behavior simply because they can’t get along?  If so, you are not alone. In 2018, SHRM embarked upon a new project to examine pettiness and how it limits careers and opportunities on a broad scale. In this presentation, you will learn about the root cause of pettiness, how HR can be its greatest enemy, and what can be done to eliminate pettiness on a day-to-day basis. Moreover, you will be given insights into the personal and organizational costs associated with petty behavior. Best of all though, we will share some of the most incredible stories related to petty behavior in the workplace.
