Abstract

Avoiding potentially divisive language and encouraging tolerance are critical steps to creating an inclusive work environment, but they carry a downside. Being politically correct can deplete employees and lead them to act both angrily towards and withdraw from their spouse that evening at home. Joel Koopman, Klodiana Lanaj, and colleagues write that the depletion that employees feel after being politically correct is problematic and should be of concern to managers.
