Bullying Becomes Bigger

Everyone, it seems is becoming more aware of bullying and its degrading impact.  From people in general to the government and the Courts.  A recent case resulted in 17 months' lost wages and a $15,000 compensation award - on the back of being bullied into submission after lodging a bullying complaint.  $98,000!

Bullying never works - it is toxic - it is demoralising - it is expensive. Above all it treats someone as nothing.  The challenge is that some managers just don't see the difference between valid giving of instructions and bullying behaviours to enforce them.

Worksafe have some great resources to combat bullying; we can help you put them in place if you need.

Let's all make a commitment to kick bullying into touch.
