Bullying in the Workplace
Have respect and good manners begun to slip in your workplace?
Is rude behavior becoming the norm?
Bullies often act just under the radar, denying their hostile intent or shrugging off their behaviors as humorous or insignificant. Yet, the constant tension they create -- and the way their harmful activities tend to build over time --not only damages the individual targets of their behavior but also the workgroup as a whole.
That's why you need to bring bullying out into the open. So you can deal with it directly and put an end to it.

Bullying & Respect in the Workplace - A video for victims and bullies
In five dramatic stories taking place in settings that range from a hospital to City Hall, victims and witnesses will see how to speak up and challenge a coworkers mean-spirited behavior in a straightforward way that earns them respect. They'll also learn they do not have to face this problem alone. If they are not comfortable challenging a bully on their own -- or if they do speak up and the behavior continues -- they can reach out to supervisors, HR or other designated resources to help resolve the issues.
For any bullies who may be watching, this video clearly shows that mistreating a fellow employee makes you look bad in the eyes of others and will not be tolerated in your workplace.

Managing the Workplace Bully
What do you do if you're the supervisor or manager of a problem employee? What if you are the target of bullying behavior, yourself? Or if you are accused of acting like a bully?
As a manager, it's up to you to be a role model. You need to insist on being treated respectfully yourself, and you need to provide a safe and respectful atmosphere for your people.
Sure, it takes courage to confront a disruptive team member. And, yes, you may be tempted to look the other way when a star performer is the one who is behaving badly. Or when under-performing employees disappoint you again and again -- well, it's admittedly tough not to treat them harshly yourself.
Bullying & Respect in the Workplace videos tackle these issues head on, providing practical solutions that help you put an end to bullying behavior in your subordinates -- and find new ways to deal with your own frustrations so that you don't end up looking like the bad guy.
The Hidden Costs of Bullying
Sometimes high performers get away with bullying even though the harm they cause far outweighs their accomplishments. Bullying reduces engagement and productivity, increases absenteeism and turnover, and adds stress that damages health. The costs of bullying are never justified, no matter how irreplaceable the bully may seem.
