Tackling workplace bullying and harassment

It is not news that bullying and harassment goes on at work.

The cost scale of harassment and bullying at work reasonably well known; what we want to do is review that evidence and try to identify key learning so you can take the best action and make the most impact with what is likely to be limited resources.

There is no evidence that workplace bullying in the UK is on the decrease, despite the
various attempts made to reduce its incidence. So it’s time to look again at the data, and
how to tackle this hidden, expensive and corrosive workplace problem. To access our data sources, see List of Resources at the end of the document.

This paper not only makes the business case for tackling bullying and harassment at work, but also gives you actions to take today, in your organisation.
