Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about mean behavior: Every time there is a new girl they seem to shun her, make rude comments, leave her out, etc
There are a couple of girls in one of our departments who seem to have the “mean girl” syndrome. Every time there is a new girl they seem to shun her, make rude comments, leave her out, etc. Our department is growing and we will be adding more and more staff. I pulled the girls aside and told them that their behavior is unacceptable and that I want everyone to feel welcomed in our department. They denied everything and seemed shocked that people would say this. How can I ensure that this type of behavior stops? Also, why do women in the workplace treat each other this way. What happened to woman sticking together?
