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.
