One of the most common sources of workplace conflict is “bullying” which is sometimes referred to as “personal harassment” or “psychological harassment”. In fact, research suggests that workplace bullying is four times more prevalent in the workplace than instances of racial and sexual harassment combined. Studies also suggest that bullying which continues unchecked damages the general morale of the workplace, creates serious psychological impacts, and erodes an organization’s financial health through lost efficiencies, absenteeism, and high employee turnover, and ultimately its public reputation.

Despite its prevalence in the workplace, the concept of bullying is poorly understood by most employers, and if understood, is rarely addressed in the appropriate fashion. For example, contrary to popular perception, bullying is not the exclusive function of managers or supervisors when dealing with subordinates: while managers may bully their subordinates, they also bully other managers/peers; furthermore, subordinates also bully their managers, and co-workers often bully one another. Bullies don’t always target employees regarded as “weak” or docile—they will more often target a colleague who is strong, capable, or thought to be a “rising star”—in order to undermine the target employee’s profile in the organization.

The Integrity Group fully understands the totality of the “bullying” problem and knows which methods will provide your organization with the best means to end it. The Integrity Group’s highly interactive workshops teach participants to recognize all the hallmarks of workplace bullying, and equally importantly, also teach what conflicts or workplace flare-ups do not constitute bullying, e.g. the difference between “bullying” and legitimate performance management by a superior. Our workshops provide organizations with all the latest tools and strategies to address workplace bullying effectively.

Our experts can also conduct a workplace assessment or independent investigation to determine whether you have a “bully” in your organization that must be dealt with expeditiously.
