only fail to model and reinforce prosocial behavior, they actually provide training in aggressive non-compliant behavior” (2013, p.1). I found in the GCU library how negative deviant affects the workplace and solutions for it. As said in Appelbaum “In order to minimize negative deviant behavior within the workplace, organizations must adapt to a specific organizational culture. Specifically, an organizational culture that is centered on extremely important ethical core values ( Sinclair, 1993 as cited in Appelbaum, Iaconi & Matousek, 2007). Ethical core values are established by the management team in order to create a “unitary and cohesive organizational structure” ( Sinclair, 1993 as cited in Appelbaum et al., 2007). A second, less drastic approach to minimize negative deviant workplace behaviors involves grouping together all the generally accepted values and norms present within the workforce by the management team. By understanding the different values held by different subcultures within the company, management can then provide the direction for employees belonging to a specific subculture of the company” ( Appelbaum et al., 2005 as cited in Appelbaum et al., 2007). These are some solutions that are still being used in today’s workplace.
