WBI Campaign to fund a 2014 National Survey

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Our last national survey on workplace bullying was done in 2010. The WBI is currently seeking donations to fund a new 2014 U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey. The goal is modest (you can give a small amount and still make it happen).

Visit the WBI campaign on Indiegogo for details!

WBI Study: Age and Workplace Bullied Targets

Monday, July 1st, 2013

AGE OF WORKPLACE BULLIED TARGETS
WBI 2013-G Instant Poll

For the 16 years of WBI operations, we have noticed that telephone callers seeking help with their workplace bullying problems are rarely young. They tend to be veteran workers with long careers. For a variety of reasons documented by other WBI studies older workers make ideal vulnerable targets. An earlier WBI study found the average age to be 41. We again asked about age when bullying started at work.

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.
