Lawyers came second with a total of 722 swearing words and an average of 60 words/week, and the last rank goes to charity and volunteering workers with a total of 57 times swearing and an average of 5 words/week.
The survey indicates that swearing in the workplace greatly impacts the work environment as it creates more closeness, confidence, and solidarity among the employees.
