Course Introduction

In a recent survey nearly a third (29%) of the people who took part said that they’d been bullied at work. And more than a third (36%) who reported having been bullied left their jobs as a result of it. Others said they’d suffered from things like depression and anxiety.

Bullying and harassment in the workplace can impact on performance and productivity through low morale, and in some cases, it can lead to costly legal action and reputational damage.

Sometimes it’s easy to spot direct forms of bullying and harassment such as rude gestures, offensive remarks, hostile glares, excluding people or giving them the silent treatment. However, it’s often very subtle and can involve things like spreading malicious rumours, making unrealistic demands, assigning demeaning tasks, or denying someone opportunities for training or promotion. It’s also now common for bullying and harassment to take place through email, texts, social media and messaging apps.

Although many workers are direct victims of bullying and harassment, many more are witnesses who may be indirectly affected when, for example, the see a colleague being picked on or humiliated.
