Britain matches American prevalence of workplace bullying

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

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%.

New national British Survey sheds light on workplace bullying and violence

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

The British Workplace Behaviour Survey released this week at the Festival of Social Sciences in London is a 21-question instrument designed to cover a 2-year period in respondents’ lives. It was administered to 3,979 employees in home, face-to-face interviews. The representative (and thus scientific) survey explored prevalence of a wide range of behaviors that comprise “ill treatment” in the UK workplace. This is a major study with several significant findings, including conclusions about why employers do so little to eliminate it.

“Ill treatment” included: unreasonable treatment (reported by 47%), denigration and disrespect (40%), 33% experienced both unreasonable treatment and denigration and disrespect, and 6% experienced violence.
