Abstract

The abuse of organisational resources, lying to colleagues, mishandling of confidential data, blackmail, etc - deviant behaviour in the workplace is not just a nuisance, but also a crippling and costly affair, easily reaching billions annually. As it is, business leaders are already saddled with enough worries over the market environment. Tackling deviant behaviour is an extra human resource challenge that most would prefer to go without. Lance Ferris, an organisational behaviour and human resources professor at Singapore Management University, looks at what causes such behaviour: self-esteem, and how managers can address this issue.
