Work It Out

When you hear bullying you may automatically assume children are the only people that get bullied. That is simply not the case, bullying can happen as an adult too. This weeks blog is about bullying in that workplace. How does it happen? What do you do?

What is workplace bullying? Some things that can happen in a workplace could be spreading rumors, undermining someone, unwarranted or undeserved punishment, withholding helpful information, etc. Being bullied at work can decrease work moral, increase stress, increase absenteeism, etc. If you are being bullied at work there are a few things you can do, keep a journal to document every act of bullying, keep copies of emails (or any form of communication) between you and the bully, and report the harassment to a manager in your workplace. Your workplace should be a kind environment, you should encourage and uplift your coworkers! Always remember to treat others how you want to be treated! 

Stay Strong & Stay Positive,
