Workplace bullying has reached staggering levels. Workplace Bullying International and Zogby International call workplace bullying an “underreported epidemic”. Dr Judy Fisher-Blando’s research in 2008, Aggressive Behavior: Workplace Bullying and Its Effect on Job Satisfaction and Productivity, estimated 75% of workers had been either directly targeted or witnesses to workplace bullying.
Workplace bullying can start and grow anywhere, from the Office of the Prime Minister of Great Britain, to the City of Mississauga Transportation Department. Here’s some shocking news coverage on workplace bullying that went on for 5 years at the Mississauga Transportation Department:

Reality shows like The Apprentice and Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen (& most of his other shows) glorify belligerent bullies and teach us to accept and expect workplace bullying. While the bully’s behaviour is never acceptable, all employees must take responsibility to stand up and protect once another from immature, out-of-control emotional tirades and meltdowns. We are beginning to understand that when we look the other way, we are not minimizing bullying’s effect. In fact, just the opposite. Silent bystanding says “Yes” to bullying, paving the way for future, worse episodes. Workplace bullying affects our kids too, teaching them to be bullied targets at work and to aspire to be the bully, because the bully becomes the boss.
Join the growing wave of employees determined to hold the line on bullying
and set a better example for our kids!
