Scales measuring witnessed incivility from colleagues and superiors and personally instigated incivility, together with measures of well-being, job satisfaction and stress-levels were included in the questionnaire.
Four separate multiple regressions revealed witnessed colleague and supervisor incivility to significantly explain variance in all four models, relating witnessed colleague and supervisor incivility to instigated incivility, lower levels of well-being, lower levels of job satisfaction and higher levels of stress. The implications of these findings were discussed. (Less)
