Preventing Workplace Bullying
Workplace bullying is defined as unwanted and recurring negative and abusive acts aimed at one or more individual. Bullies use an extended list of behaviors that include, but are certainly not limited to, silent treatment, yelling and outbursts, undue and extreme criticism, uber-excessive micromanagement, assigning tasks above or below competence levels, giving impossible deadlines, punitive disciplinary actions, withholding information, and discouraging initiative.
Research from around the world indicates between 50% to 70% of employees are bullied at work, and that targets experience an array of psychologically damaging consequences including distress, humiliation, anger, anxiety, discouragement, hopelessness, depression, burnout, and lower job satisfaction.
Of course, all of this decreases the bottom line – it is estimated a small business can spend up to $100,000 annually per bully, while an organization of 1,000 people can spend up to $1,000,000 annually, in turnover, absenteeism, presenteeism, low quality work and reduced work product, decreased company loyalty, development of a hostile workplace culture, communication breakdown, bad reputation within the community and industry, and workers compensation and litigation… to name only a few costly damages.
