What impact does workplace bullying have on your business?



Bullying occurs when people repeatedly and intentionally use words or actions against someone or a group of people to cause distress and risk to their wellbeing. The effects of bullying on an organisation are difficult to measure, but there are certainly wide-reaching impacts on both individuals and the broader workplace culture.

WorkSafe Australia reports 37% of Australian workers have being sworn or yelled at – quite unbelievable that almost half of us have been bullied at some stage of our working life. While such prevalence is an uncomfortable reality, there are important insights in each story which can be a powerful educational tool.
