Indonesia: Siapa Biasanya Korban Bullying di Tempat Kerja?

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

The international reach of WBI …

By Timi Trieska Dara – 14 Oktober 2014, MetroTVNews, Jakarta, Indonesia

Intimidasi (bullying) di tempat kerja bukan hal baru. Sebagian besar korban bullying adalah perempuan. Survei yang dilakukan Workplace Bullying Institute Amerika Serikat mencatat sekitar 37 persen pekerja menjadi korban bullying.

Penulis sebuah penelitian, Karan Smith, mengatakan sekitar 40 persen dari pelaku bully di tempat kerja di AS adalah perempuan. Korban bullying sebagian besar adalah perempuan. Selain itu, pria pelaku bully juga sering memilih perempuan sebagai korbannya.

Berikut beberapa hasil pengamatan terkait bullying di tempat kerja:

1. Bullying memiliki banyak bentuk
“Taktik bully dari yang bersifat keras–berteriak, membanting pintu, dan ngomel–hingga yang halus, misalnya karyawan yang dibully tidak diikutsertakan dalam pertemuan penting atau ditugaskan tanpa sumber daya yang memadai untuk menyelesaikan pekerjaan rekannya. Rekan kerjanya bisa direkrut dalam ekspedisi untuk mengisolasinya. Di belakang korban, pengganggu melancarkan aksinya, meskipun bos sendiri sering menjadi penyebabnya,” kata Karan.

2. Pelaku bully memilih karyawan yang baik sebagai korban
“Karyawan yang diserang sering kompeten, berkomitmen pada satu prinsip, dipilih untuk kekuatannya, bukan kelemahannya,” ujarnya.

3. Ikan membusuk dari kepala
“Bullying biasanya terjadi dalam kepemimpinan yang buruk,” kata Karan.

4. Bullying menciptakan penyakit
Korban bully akan sering mengalami tekanan darah tinggi, depresi, diabetes, dan bahkan masalah di tempat kerja seperti gangguan pasca-trauma stres.

Cara terbaik untuk mencegah bullying, baik pria maupun wanita, adalah mempertimbangkan alasan sosial yang mendasar mengapa hal itu terjadi di tempat pertama.

ESPN critics of NFL model how DC pundits should criticize US gov’t

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. George Orwell

There’s a level of refreshing level of candor about Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner, from two ESPN employees — Keith Olbermann and Bill Simmons — rarely spoken today in mainstream media (and ESPN is certainly mainstream). It’s all the more remarkable when you learn that ESPN pays the NFL $15 billion to televise Monday Night Football. So, ESPN critics could be seen as biting the hand that feeds them, but these two pundits show tremendous courage in calling out the NFL mismanagement of its current domestic violence crisis.

Bill Simmons is the writer who started Grantland (an ESPN Internet Venture) and has been an ESPN superstar. For his calling Goodell a liar, he earned a 3 week suspension. The Simmons B.S. Podcast from which the audio came was pulled from the Grantland website by ESPN. Here is the audio that got him into trouble.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Also brave were ESPN writers, Don Van Natta, Jr. and Keith Van Valkenburg, who wrote an extraordinary investigative Outside the Lines article that revealed that Goodell and the Baltimore Ravens ownership colluded with Ray Rice’s attorney to cover up his domestic violence incident. Then, both Goodell and Ravens owner, Steve Bisciotti, lied about their knowledge of it. Very Nixonian of the NFL.

The OTL article title

Despite ESPN silencing Simmons and reportedly wordsmithing the OTL article with some deletions, many critics on the network are jabbing the NFL. Critics are the only ones who can hold institutions accountable.

Why do we not see the same drive to be candid from the Washington DC beltway political pundits? Their relationships with the “newsmakers” is way too cozy. Reporter would rather ingratiate themselves with the people they are paid to hold accountable. Kissing up and comfort prevent truthtelling. The result — America is in a new war while still fighting the old one with public support.

After all …

All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed. I.F. Stone

Artie T. back in saddle at Market Basket – worker revolt successful

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

UPDATE: Success.

We reported in late July about the long-standing feud between second generation owners of the Market Basket grocery store chain in the Northeast. Arthur S. Demoulas fired his cousin Artie T. Workers rose in support because he had done several costly things to help financially strapped workers when the stock market collapse ate up retirement savings. Local politicians called for boycotts of the stores. Shelves ran bare. Governors in two states pled for a solution.

Now, Artie T.’s offer to buy the chain, to remove Artie S., has been accepted by the Board. Artie T. will restore all lost jobs. Artie S. had fired protestors.

Life resumes to normal in a couple of months as the chain reverts to control by Artie T.

This is a very rare story where non-union workers prevailed. A great story. Justice.

WBI Webinar: Making the Business Case

Friday, August 8th, 2014

The WBI Target Action Plan is our suggested course of action for bullied targets who have back-stabbing coworkers, unsympathetic bosses, no union support, and a host of employer representatives who tell them that the bullying is their fault. Forget rational appeals for help made to enablers of the bullying. They are part of the “vast conspiracy” making it a case of many against one. The tendency is to implore that the emotional abuse stop and that is typically done in an emotional way. The WBI plan teaches you to become an unemotional advocate for yourself by making the “business case.”

Watch the latest WBI webinar to learn how.

CBC: Workplace bullying at Wal Mart

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Canadian TV on the CBC show The National investigated workplace bullying by telling the tale of one brave woman’s Wal Mart case. Key points made — employers ignore bullying and ignore evidence when presented by bullied targets and choose to not resolve it until pushed by lawsuits and the difficulty of proving intentional infliction of emotional distress. Also noteworthy is that the in-depth story was 9 min. long. (Are you paying attention US TV with your shallow 2 min. segments???)
