Örgütsel toksisite ya da örgütsel zehirlenme, toksik davranışlar olarak sınıflandırılan bireysel faktörlerin bir sonucu olarak ortaya çıkar. Bundan dolayı, bu çalışmanın amacı, farklı üniversitelerdeki akademisyenlerin algılarına göre algılanan örgütsel toksisite, toksisitenin algılanan etkileri ve toksisiteyle başa çıkma düzeylerini incelemektir. Çalışma için gerekli verilerin toplanması için karma araştırma yöntemi kullanılmıştır. Çalışmaya 116’sı erkek ve 90’ı kadın olmak üzere toplam 206 akademisyen seçkisiz olmayan bir yöntemle seçilmiştir. Karma yöntemlerin kullanıldığı çalışmanın nicel bölümünde betimsel tarama modeli kullanılmıştır. Araştırmanın nitel kısmı, açık uçlu sorular içeren yarı yapılandırılmış bir görüşme tekniği içermektedir. Nicel verileri analiz etmek için parametrik olmayan istatistiksel yöntemler kullanılmıştır. Nitel verilerin analiz edilmesi için ise içerik analizi yöntemi kullanılmıştır. Çalışmanın bulguları örgütsel toksisitenin etkisinin, yükseköğretimdeki akademisyenlerin toksisite ile başa çıkma düzeylerinden daha yüksek olduğunu ortaya koymuştur. Bulgular ayrıca algılanan örgütsel toksisite ile toksisitenin algılanan etkileri arasında pozitif yönde ve anlamlı bir ilişki olduğunu belirtmiştir. Bunlara ek olarak, akademisyenler, çalıştıkları bölümlerde bazı durumlarda meslektaşları tarafından kıskanıldıklarını da belirtmişlerdir.

Organizational toxicity occurs as a result of individual factors classified as toxic behaviors. For this aim, the objective of this study is to determine the levels of perceived organizational toxicity, detected effects of toxicity, and strategies of coping with toxicity of academicians at different universities. A mixed research method was selected for collecting adequate data for the study. A total of 206 participants including 116 males and 90 females were selected through a non-random selection. The study employed a mixed method approach. The survey model of descriptive method was used in the quantitative part of the study. The qualitative part of the study included a semi-structured interview technique involving open ended questions. Non-parametric statistical methods were employed to analyze quantitative data. In addition, content analysis method was employed to analyze qualitative data. The findings of the study showed that the effects of organizational toxicity were higher on academicians in higher education than their coping with toxicity. The findings also indicated that there were positive and significant correlations between perceived organizational toxicity and detected effects of toxicity. Furthermore, most of the academicians agreed that they have experienced toxic behaviors such as jealousy from their colleagues in their departments.
