Bullying doesn’t stop when people leave high school. It happens at work too.
The Workplace Bullying Institute (WPI) has been working for 20 years “to research and understand, to educate the public and to teach prevention and correction of abusive conduct at work.”
Here’s how WPI defines workplace bullying:
“Workplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators. It is abusive conduct that is:
• Threatening, humiliating, or intimidating, or
• Work interference — sabotage — which prevents work from getting done, or
• Verbal abuse
This definition was used in the 2014 WBI U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey. Its national prevalence was assessed.”
If you are being bullied at work, here are some tips to help you overcome it.
