Tips To Combat Workplace Bullying
Posted by Heidi Schwartz
The Workplace Bullying Institute defines workplace bullying as “repeated mistreatment: sabotage by others that prevented work from getting done, verbal abuse, threatening conduct, intimidation, and humiliation.”
Regardless of how your company defines it, there’s one big, important takeaway: Workplace bullying is an early warning sign of potential violence in the office. Employers can combat workplace bullying by:
- Setting effective company policies against bullying
- Communicating and training staff on policies and recognizing bullying tactics
- Intervening at the first signs of bullying behavior
