50 percent of the U.S. workforce reports either being bullied at work or witnessing someone else being bullied at work. According to the Workplace Bullying Institute, bullying is four times more prevalent than illegal harassment. This is why workplace bullying training is essential. It's up to everyone in the organization to acknowledge that bullying is unacceptable, recognize bullying behavior, and work to prevent it.
The examples take place in office, education, healthcare and industrial settings. Through vignettes that illustrate bullying on the part of both leaders and co-workers, viewers learn keys to preventing workplace bullying.
The 4 keys to preventing workplace bullying presented are:
- Recognize Bullying Behavior - Know what behaviors cross the line and are considered bullying.
- Speak Up for Yourself - Stay calm. Be confident. Share facts and feelings.
- Stand Up for Others - State observations. Share concerns. Explain the impact of the behavior.
- Commit to Next Steps - Review company policies. Document actions and responses. Involve HR or Management. Formalize your complaint.
While the main program is appropriate for both managers and employees, a separate Manager's Module
gives leaders additional instruction on bullying behaviors and the damage they cause. Leaders are taught to address bullying when they observe it and are given a checklist of items to think about that allow them to evaluate their own behaviors.
