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.
Even though many countries still don’t have anti-bullying laws in place, workplace bullying remains a trending international workplace issue.
According to the Healthy Workplace Campaign, workplace bullying is defined as repeated health-harming mistreatment that takes one or more of the following forms:
Offensive behaviors that are threatening, humiliating, or intimidating.
Work interference or sabotage that prevents work from getting done.
Illegal or not, workplace bullying kills productivity, damages your employer brand, and can even lead to costly lawsuits, depending on the discrimination and harassment laws in your country.
