Anti-bullying Week

Unfortunately, bullying in the workplace is still a significant issue across the UK.

A recent report by SME Loans found that 23% of people feel that they have been bullied in the workplace, and a further 25% of people feel they have been victim to passive bullying by being deliberately left out. Bullying can have a hugely detrimental effect on our mental health and can make work harder to cope with.

But it’s not always easy to speak out. We may feel intimidated to vocalise what we’re going through, or unsure about how our managers or colleagues may react. Nobody deserves to be bullied in the workplace. And organisations have the power to ensure that working environments are mentally and psychologically safe.

This week (November 15th, 2021) is Anti-Bullying Week, which gives us an opportunity to not only raise awareness about workplace bullying, but find ways to support team members to help them speak out about any issues they may be facing.

If you spot bullying in the workplace, please call it out or speak up to someone who can help you to do so, put a stop to it and support the person being bullied.

Ruth Cooper-Dickson our CEO, wrote an article for the national anxiety charity No Panic, you can access it here and it includes lots of useful hints and tips when dealing with bullying in the workplace.
