With the widely publicized U.S. National Football League (NFL) harassment scandal and the release of the Wells Report once again putting the spotlight on bullying and harassment in the workplace, it seems like an appropriate time to rerun this post from October. Whether it’s found in the locker room, the boardroom or the lunchroom, intolerance and bullying behavior affect individuals, teams, schools and companies, regardless of their size or status. The articles below are open until March 15.
October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month and unfortunately the workplace is not immune to this form of abuse. We often think of bullying among children, but studies show it is all too common in the workplace as well. In 2010, a report commissioned by the Workplace Bullying Institute showed 35% of the U.S. workforce, representing an estimated 53.5 million Americans, reported experiencing workplace bullying at some point in their careers.
