Get Cyber Bullying Out Of Your Business

To understand the push to eradicate bullying and cyberbullying from workplaces, you first have to understand how prevalent it is within them. The first thing you should know is that it is by no means rare. It may not be as blunt or blatant as it was when you were in school, but cyberbullying especially still very much exists in the adult business world we live in.  Statistically, seven out of ten staff members will leave a job during their working life as a direct result of workplace bullying. This should not be accepted as the norm but fought to extinction – especially considering we have the resources to do just that. 

 

Another factor to consider when thinking about the cost of bullying in a workplace is the financial burden. The annual cost to Australian businesses has been estimated to be around $13 Billion – due to absenteeism, staff turnover and loss of productivity due to bullying. With figures like this, it’s easy to acknowledge that change needs to be made – and fast.
