Bullying at the workplace: Statistics on bullying

Bullying at the workplace: Statistics on bullying - Human resources News on Violence in the Workplace

 

"...between 35 and 50 percent of workers have been bullied or otherwise abused in their workplaces at some point during their careers." Duffy told us.

 

"And for those of you in HR, you might be very interested to learn of the frequency statistics that were reported in a very recent study – 31 percent of human resources personnel had been bullied and over half of that bullied group believed it was because of their role in human resources and their associated responsibilities."

 

 

As if the personal implications weren’t enough, there is also a financial aspect to this situation.

 

"In the United States, the actual cost . . . $250 million annually in expenditures related to health care, litigation, staff turnover, and retraining from workplace bullying and mobbing." Duffy explained.

 

This figure may be low given a lot of these types of costs are not always attributed to bullying when in fact they could be.

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

It's time to take a close look at the quality of leadership in organizations!  Leadership is not a license to bully or condone it! The problem is that many of us don't know we are actually doing it!

Thomas Ammar's curator insight, March 16, 2016 2:24 AM
Mental Health of a worker is in my opinion the most unrecognized health issue in a workplace. Bullying at the Workplace is something we all know that goes on and is not something that is easily addressed. There are ramifications that can arise from both ends of a bullying situation. This is something that is very important to me, i hope to one day influence the workplace to eradicate bulling and impose a higher motivational chi to a workplace.

Four Lessons From the Best Bosses

Four Lessons From the Best Bosses | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

"Having a great boss shouldn't be such an unusual experience."

 

My first boss at Bell Labs had a habit of yelling. While he was an equal-opportunity yeller, when he shouted at me in my first department meeting, I got up, told him when he wanted to talk, not yell, I'd be in my office and walked out. I was 20 years old, just out of undergrad, and sitting among a group of aghast Ph.D.'s . Perhaps this was not the best initial career move. But about 30 minutes later, he walked into my office and apologized. He never yelled at me again (though he did keep yelling at the rest of the team), and became one of three manager-mentors that shaped my career at Bell Labs and AT&T — and taught me to manage others and myself. I'll share one story from each boss and the lesson I learned from each.

 

That first boss, the reformed yeller, provided multiple opportunities for visibility up to the president of Bell Labs, coaching me all the way. He went out on a limb to make me the first person promoted to Member of Technical Staff (MTS) without a Ph.D. or M.S., and under the age of 25.

HowStuffWorks "How to Handle Workplace Bullying"

HowStuffWorks "How to Handle Workplace Bullying" | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Out of the corner of your eye, you see your boss round the corner. Immediately your stomach tightens and shoulders hunch.


You wait with your eyes glued to your monitor as she walks briskly towards you, knowing she's going to have something to say about the status report you submitted last night.


You had made a small mistake and were planning on fixing it first thing this morning. It's nothing catastrophic, but experience has taught you that has no bearing on anything.


Your boss walks up behind you, and before you can say a forced "good morning," she slams the report on the table hard enough to make your colleagues turn around and look

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

80% of workplace bullying happens between managers and their staff.  

 

Have you been bullied at work?
