Workplace Bullying

Workplace Bullying  Workplace bullying is one of the biggest factors in employee turnover. It can occur for a wide variety of reasons, but one thing that all workplace bullies have in common is this: they target your most skilled workers on a consistent basis. Workplace bullying is 4x more common than discrimination or even sexual harassment. It\’s that big of a problem. Instead of spending time and money training new employees, put the health and well-being of your people first. It is up to you to make sure that you have the business structure in place that will allow you to appropriately remove a workplace bully. That\’s why having strong HR for small business in this modern environment is such a necessity. Should a Workplace Bully Be Confronted? If a bully is confronted, there is almost a guarantee of retaliation. The goal of a small business owner shouldn\’t be to create a hostile working environment. It should be to expose the bully and set up a rock-solid case for that individual\’s termination. If your business allows a bully to continue unchecked, then you may be exposing yourself to future litigation. 3 out 4 bullies are managers, supervisors, or bosses. Incredibly enough, these managers in a small business get most of their support from human resources. 40% of employees won\’t bother to report a workplace bully either – they\’ll just decide to find a new place to work where they don\’t have to be bullied. There are solutions available if you are encountering this problem.
