Workplace Bullying

Workplace bullying is not a new problem, but only just recently has the plague of bullying at work been quantified. Conservative estimates put the loss in productivity at over a billion dollars in the USA alone. Decline in employee morale, loss in productivity, employee turnover, health problems and loss in organizational reputation are just a few of the problems that the bullying causes. The bully may be a peer, a boss or a customer/client; bullying may be focused on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or simply about work; and the victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone affected by the offensive conduct. The Sable Group believes that prevention is the best tool to eliminate bullying in the workplace and training is the best way to accomplish it. back
