"Bullying is like a virus - it spreads exponentially when it's allowed to flourish."
Bullying in the workplace is not a new problem, but only recently has the epidemic of bullying at work been seriously looked at and measured. Conservative estimates put the loss in productivity at more than a billion dollars in the USA alone. Sadly, decline in employee morale, employee turnover, loss in productivity, health problems and loss in organizational reputation are just a small sampling of the many problems bullying in the workplace may cause.
Workplace Bullying Prevention Made Simple outlines numerous examples of bullying behaviors most common in today’s workplace, including:
Taunting, teasing or making jokes about a co-worker
Sabotaging another employee's work or copying, plagiarizing or stealing work
Physically threatening, shoving, striking, or touching a co-worker
Gossiping or spreading rumors about co-worker
Hazing or initiations...and many more...
