An online version of a newspaper has an account about the lack of civility in the workplace, and efforts to deal with this problem. The account cites a book recently published by a professor of business about this issue. The book notes that the American economy loses about $500 billion due to poor productivity and absenteeism caused by stress. She writes about how a nice person gets more support and cooperation. The report quotes a business consultant about this issue as well, who agrees that civility is productive.

- Employess rudeness can result in loss of satisfaction at work which can lead to billions lost due to decreased productivity
- Being civil and nice not only increases worker morale, but also allows for a open space for women and minorities to join the work force.
