Swearing is good for us

Swearing in the office relieves stress and is good for workers and bosses, according to a new study. Foul language creates a good team spirit, allows staff to vent frustrations and cements relationships, researchers discovered.

Professor Yehuda Baruch said: "Employees use swearing on a continuous basis but not necessarily in a negative, abusive manner."

Women swore more than expected, especially when there are no men present. The research found a ban on swearing would be bad for motivation and morale in most firms.

Prof Baruch said: "Swearing is used as a social phenomenon to reflect solidarity and enhance group cohesiveness or as a psychological phenomenon to release stress. The primary issue for management is whether or not to apply a tolerant leadership culture to the workplace and deliberately allow swearing. "Managers need to understand how their staff feel about swearing. The challenge is to master the art of knowing when to turn a blind eye."

Interesting!!
