Dropping an F-bomb at the office could cost you much more than 50 cents in the company swear jar, according to a new study released this week. Sixty-four percent of 2,298 hiring managers and human resources professionals surveyed said they typically have a lower opinion of employees who swear at the office, and 57% said they’d be more likely to promote employees who keep their language clean, according to a study by New York-based Harris Interactive Inc. A majority of employers surveyed also said swearing causes them to question an employee’s professionalism, control, maturity and intelligence.
