Renascent: A Toxic Work Environment
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 October 2015
This organization does important work through drug and alcohol rehabilitation. But it seems that some of the issues of mental health associated with addiction have infiltrated the organization from the top down. In all my career, I have never experienced such a toxic work environment at all levels, and had I known before, I would have never accepted a job with Renascent.
The organization has an extremely high turnover in employees, and while everyone tries to maintain a smile on the surface, the culture is one of conflict, fear and intimidation. The internal workings of this organization is totally at odds with the good nature of the work it does, and a complete renewal of the board is needed for this organization to get back to health and growth.
