Bullying at the Workplace Has to be Countered Holistically

Bullying at the workplace is a serious issue that can have major consequences for employees and the organization. HR has to nip it in the bud before it spirals out of control.

Very quickly, bullying includes all or any of these:

  • Swearing at other employees
  • Harassing
  • Humiliating
  • Threatening
  • Abusing
  • Interfering in another colleague’s work,
  • Intimidating, and the like.

Bullying at the workplace, like violence, is a fact of life. At differing levels, it is prevalent almost globally. Having said this, it is not apt for HR to accept this fact and go on with life. HR has a major responsibility of ensuring that workplace bullying has to be dealt with effectively.

Dealing with a global phenomenon

On most occasions, bullying is very discreet. The bully and the bullied both know it is there, but is very difficult to prove or pin down some actions to. Worse, the bully is on many occasions the boss, which means no one has the courage to take the bully on.

Workplace bullying can flare out and become an all-consuming inferno if it is not contained properly.
