Workplace bullying can occur in many forms, such as humiliation, harassment, blocking advancement, discrimination, intimidation and rumour-mongering.


This article by Heidi Lynne Kurter, writing for Forbes, makes the following three points about how organizations empower workplace bullies:
  1. Prioritizing Company Outcomes over Problems. Bullying prevents achieving full potential in the workplace due to decreased engagement, productivity and performance, increased turnover, and an eroded reputation.
  2. Failing to take Complaints Seriously. This can send the message to the targeted employee that the bully is protected and shows the bully that their behaviour is acceptable.
  3. Giving Bullies a Slap on the Wrist. Companies empower bullies when they aren’t consistent on how they address and implement sanctions against bullies
