In a recent survey, Emtrain asked which workplace issue employers were most worried about. Of those polled, 67% named workplace bullying as the workplace issue that concerned them the most.

According to the Healthy Workplace Campaign, workplace bullying is defined as repeated health-harming mistreatment that takes one or more of the following forms:

  • Verbal abuse.

  • Offensive behaviors that are threatening, humiliating, or intimidating.

  • Work interference or sabotage that prevents work from getting done.
