Bullying seems to be another buzzword these days, but when we think of bullying, often we think of bullying in high school or middle school. Certainly not about bullying in the workplace.
Recent studies show that 72 percent of the time bosses react in a way that is unhelpful to the victim of bullying and only 12 percent leads to the actual elimination of bullying from the workplace.
We all seem to have heard the phrase about sticks and stones, but studies are increasingly showing that bullying has a longlasting effect on victims.
Victims have increased risk of sucidality, depression, and mistrust of their peers.
