Over 45% of Australians have experienced workplace bullying at some point in their career, according to a report conducted by the Centre for Health Initiatives, the University of Wollongong and non-profit beyondblue.
Workplace bullying transcends industries. Most people have witnessed these situations or been subject to them firsthand. Unfortunately, bullying is not something limited to the schoolyard.
Bullying isn’t something we can ignore and hope it goes away. Australian business leaders must be proactive about workplace bullying if they do not wish to risk their employees suffering the myriad of side effects that result from these reactions, including serious health and psychological issues.
