Workplace bullying affects more than 50 million U.S. employees. This topic will be discussed at an April program sponsored by The Human Resource Association of Central Connecticut.
With one incident of bullying every seven minutes, sadly, bullying is the most frequent form of violence that school-aged children encounter.
What may be surprising is the number of U.S. employees who report being bullied at work. Recent studies about the prevalence of workplace bullying in the United States have confirmed that between 27% and 35% of employees in the report having been bullied at work. That’s about 54 million people!
Dr. Teresa Daniel, author and dean & professor-Human Resource Leadership Programs Sullivan University, Louisville, KY says there are differences between a “tough boss” and a workplace bully.
Dr. Daniels’ latest research explores the prevalence of bullying among Human Resource professionals and whether such abusive practices might somehow be related to the HR role itself. This is described in her book, “Stop Bullying at Work: Strategies and Tools for HR & Legal Professionals”.
Dr. Daniel will meet with HR and business professionals at a meeting sponsored by the Human Resource Association of Central Connecticut (HRACC) on April 16. She will discuss how bullying affects the health, family life, and productivity of employees, and the current and proposed legal protections for targets of bullying. She will also explore some of the reasons these counterproductive behaviors persist throughout organizations in all sectors.
The presentation will take place at the Sheraton, Rocky Hill, 5 to 8 p.m. For more information and to register, please visit http://www.hracc.org. The cost for members is $40, $50 for non-members, and $20 for members in transition.
