Workplace bullying and harassment is a behaviour that makes someone feel intimidated or offended, it is commonplace, but not in the job description for you to deal with it. You may be being bullied, but not realising the signs of it, or even worse, blaming yourself as to why it’s happening because it’s a hard thing to identify and address.
If you feel you may be a victim of workplace bullying, this course will help you to identify the signs that you are being bullied. We also recommend that you write down and keep an account of every bullying incident so you can create a report.
Workplace Bullying Statistics
The Trades Union Congress (TUC) carried out a survey that discovered nearly a third of people are bullied at work, and of that third, nearly three-quarters of the bullying cases were carried out by managers or senior staff figures.
46% of people say that workplace bullying has an adverse impact on work performance, and the same proportion believe it has a negative effect on their mental health. This course will help you to identify bullying and understand the costs it entails to workers and organisations, and how to prevent bullying while ultimately protecting yourself from “the silent epidemic”.
