Bullying in workplace

I’ve watched a “detective game show” whereby they always try to incorporate current issues into the crime. I love that show for many reasons and one of them is the message they bring across.

This week’s theme is about Workplace bully. A few point they mentioned were:

1) “I’m just picking out your mistakes to help you improve!” and then they get out of hand with their “picking out of mistakes”.

2) The “abuse” of middle age workers (with families) by bosses who knows they NEED the job to support their family. They suck their blood knowing they can’t afford to quit.

3) Bullying of people who are new or don’t have the courage to say “No”.

4) Name-calling/giving “cute” nicknames without asking if the person like being called the names. Or not bothering to remember names, “Aye, you come here…”, “the who…? the pink shirt one!”

5) “Professionalism = not praising” ??? “If I’m good, I can be mean. There are 100s of others out there waiting to take your position”.

The 2017 US Workplace Bullying Survey showed that almost 60% US workers are affected by bullying. That is a pretty high percentage!
