What is Workplace Bullying?
Workplace Bullying definition
Bullying is recurrent maltreatment, verbal abuse, or behaviour that is threatening, degrading and intimidating. Usually, it is without reason and aimed at a specific group or individual.
How to identify bullying at work?
Bullying at work can take many different forms:
- Regularly unreasonable requirements from managers
- Undermining integrity and confidence
- Fallacious accusations
People see behaviour in different ways, so what is ‘just a joke’ to someone, maybe recurring bullying to another.
Bullying is a very grave problem, and organisations must have procedures implemented to deal with workplace bullying. Managers must not pass over the issue, since this can cause severe damages throughout the workforce.
