WBI Research: Bullied Targets Discover Workplace Bullying

Monday, September 9th, 2013

BULLIED TARGETS DISCOVER WORKPLACE BULLYING
WBI – 2013 – Discovery Survey

At WBI over the years, we have been called by nearly 10,000 individuals seeking answers to their questions about their irrational and destructive workplace bullying experiences. In our 3-step Target Action Plan, the first step begins with an acknowledgment that the abusive conduct was perpetrated by others external to themselves. That step typically is the first time a name is given to the assaults that comprise bullying.

Corrective actions all depend on that initial recognition. In this survey we asked targets of, and witnesses to, the bullying to describe the timing of the recognition of the label for their experiences and its source.

WBI Study: Barriers to workplace bullied targets leaving their jobs

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013


BARRIERS TO WORKPLACE BULLIED TARGETS
LEAVING THEIR JOBS
WBI 2013-C Instant Poll

One of the criticisms leveled against individuals targeted for workplace bullying is that they should “just” quit. That simplistic advice is cruel and short-sighted. Quitting is not a simple decision. Consider for a moment the single parent target. What will replace the lost income?

We at WBI who have talked to thousands of targets over the years by phone and in-person know there are other barriers to leaving a toxic work environment, regardless of how damaging that job and employer are to the target’s health. It is never easy to leave, to escape to safety.

This survey asks target-respondents to evaluate which two barriers listed convinced them to not leave.

2013 WBI-ZOGBY: WORKPLACE BULLYING FROM THE
PERSPECTIVE OF U.S. BUSINESS LEADERS

Part 2 of 2

Zogby Analytics was commissioned by the Workplace Bullying Institute to conduct an online survey of 315 U.S. business leaders in three market areas: San Francisco, New York City and Washington D.C. The survey was completed January 21, 2013.

The sample consisted of three groups of decision makers: Owner or partner (Owners); CXO/Administrator/Director (CXOs); President/VP/Manager (VPs). There were 58 owners, 95 CXOs, and 158 presidents. One hundred ten respondents led companies with more than 500 employees, 47 led companies with between 201-500 employees, and 48 led companies with between 50-200 employees, and 106 led companies with less than 50 employees.

Two WBI-relevant questions were asked as part of the larger Business Leaders Survey.

WBI Survey: Workplace Bullying from the Perspective of U.S. Business Leaders, Part 1

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

2013 WBI-ZOGBY: WORKPLACE BULLYING FROM THE
PERSPECTIVE OF U.S. BUSINESS LEADERS

Part 1 of 2

Most of the research conducted by the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI) queries individuals who have declared themselves to be targets of workplace bullying. That is, we are able to see the word through the lens of targets. These surveys are based on self-selected samples, and are necessarily non-scientific.

In a WBI 2010 survey of 333 target-respondents, they stated that only 4% of employers had raised awareness of bullying, whereas 81% had done nothing to stop bullying. Of the employers who did nothing, 46% were described as “resistant” to the topic.

WBI asked 311 targets in 2012 to describe policies their employers had created to address workplace bullying. Only 5.5% of employers were given credit for having a policy and enforcement procedure that effectively covered bullying (3% of those policies were titled “Respect” Policies). (WBI-2012-IP-B)

In a separate 2012 survey, 250 targets reported that 30% of their employers said that bullying “doesn’t happen” (at their workplace). Additionally, respondents said that 88% of American employers failed to take action at all. Employers denied their responsibility to fix the problem. (WBI-2012-IP-E)

The portrait of employer activity as told by targets was unflattering. We were able, thanks to the resources of Zogby Analytics, to poll business leaders directly. The results enable a comparison of target and executive perspectives.
