Workplace bullying Workplace bullying is when an individual’s (or group of individuals) behavior is abusive, insulting, or offensive to others. Such behavior may be perceived as threatening, dangerous, racist, or irrational to the person or group at which it is directed. While workplace bullying can obstruct everyone’s ability to work safely and efficiently, it can also be damaging to a company’s reputation, capabilities, and capacity to serve its customers. Companies should have a policy in place to allow individuals to confidentially disclose unfair treatment without the concern of facing retaliation or threats. Additionally, such a policy can aid in encouraging fair treatment of others and full exposure of activity taking place within the organization.
