Q&A: How data analytics can identify toxic work environments

In the past there was never much of a focus on toxic work environments. Nobody really cared what went on behind closed doors – it was all about results. Steve Jobs was a poster boy for terrible bullying and everyone applauded him anyway. Today things have changed. Despite Uber’s many successes it has been genuinely pilloried for its terrible work environment.
