While workplace harassment and workplace violence continue to garner public attention, other types of abusive workplace behavior have remained largely in the shadows. Research by the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI) indicates that nearly 20% of U.S. workers have experienced workplace bullying, almost the same percentage of Americans who have suffered sexual harassment in the workplace. Organizations (not to mention legislators and regulators) have been trying for years to address workplace misconduct that targets vulnerable employees, and yet the problem persists. Clearly, previous methods haven’t been very effective. It’s time organizations take a more comprehensive approach by fostering a positive workplace culture and taking appropriate action when needed.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- The definition of bullying
- Who the bullies are and who the victims are
- How to foster a civil workplace
- Actions to take if a bullying incident occurs
