It’s unfortunate workplace bullying exists, especially when you consider it is happening among well-meaning, educated adults. And while this can be an incredibly uncomfortable situation to address, allowing workplace bullying to persist will eat away at the core of any organization or department. It will cause motivated, hard-working employees to resent the organization for not managing the problem which will negatively impact their performance. Soon the manager of a department will have multiple issues to handle that are a direct result of bullying.
Bullies at work can act like cancer within an organization or department if not dealt with in a timely manner.

- Corner other employees and make them feel uncomfortable when they think no one else is around?
- Sabotage a colleague’s work?
- Use inappropriate or profane language during interactions?
- Bad mouth a co-worker to others in the hopes of making people turn against someone?
