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.
