Workplace bullying can damage both staff and the organisation they work for. Preventing Workplace Bullying: An Evidence-Based Guide for Managers and Employees is a practical guide on how to identify bullying and deal with it effectively, or better still, prevent it.
Workplace bullying is more common and costly than most people realise. It can make life unbearable for employees in any industry, and ultimately undermine an organisation’s bottomline.
This guide explains how to identify workplace bullying and apply best practice to preventing and managing it. The authors outline what constitutes bullying at work, demystify some of the controversial issues, and discuss the various factors which influence workplace bullying.
The responsibilities of management, and legal implications in different countries are outlined, and supported with best practice guides for policies, complaints procedures and risk management systems.
Options and resources for targets experiencing bullying are also explored. These ideas and concepts are illustrated throughout with real case studies.
This evidence-based book on workplace bullying is a valuable resource for organisations of all sizes and for anyone affected by bullying at work including employees, human resource managers, workplace consultants, counsellors, mediators and legal advisors.
