Britain matches American prevalence of workplace bullying
The just-released British Workplace Behaviour Survey explored “ill treatment.” Two of the three categories of negative behavior explored in the study add to comprise what we call workplace bullying. The Survey findings can be extrapolated to the entire British workforce because it was a scientific sample. The bullying prevalence was 33%, and respondents were asked to consider mistreatment experienced in the last 2 years. American prevalence was estimated by the 2010 WBI U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey, also nationally representative and scientific. From that study we know that 9% of respondents said they were currently bullied and 26% reported having been bullied, but not currently — summing to 35%.
