Preventing Bullying in the Workplace

Preventing bullying is key to a respectful, inclusive workplace

Workplace Bullying Training

Workplace bullying is a pervasive problem, affecting 79.3 million US workers, according to a recent survey. And as more organizations shift to a remote or hybrid work environment, cyberbullying is on the rise. Workplace bullying is defined as an ongoing pattern of deliberate, hurtful, repeated mistreatment of an employee or group of employees by one or more individuals at any level of an organization. The negative impact of bullying is significant — affecting employee health, wellbeing and psychological safety, productivity, recruiting and retention and organizational culture. 

While workplace bullying is not currently prohibited by federal law, many states have introduced anti-bullying bills. Importantly, if bullying is left unchecked, it can lead to illegal harassment if based on someone’s race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin or other protected characteristic.

Providing workplace bullying training is an effective way to teach employees how to recognize bullying behavior and prevent it. Further, workplace bullying training reinforces an organization’s code of conduct and other policies and initiatives that promote a culture of civility, respect and inclusion.
