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
  • Sabotaging
  • Undermining integrity and confidence
  • Fallacious accusations
  • Shunning
  • Etc

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.
