Decreased productivity, absenteeism, poor morale, staff turnover...
Is this happening in your workplace?
The Workplace Bullying Project Team at Griffith University estimate that workplace bullying costs Australian business between $6 and $13 billion a year.
However, the hidden cost is in the health of workers. They experience:
Feelings of disconnection from and dislike of work
Absenteeism, causing lower production outcomes and completion rates
Lacking quality friendships at work
Displaying high levels of emotion that indicate vulnerability and low levels of resilience
Being less well accepted by peers, avoiding conflict and be socially withdrawn
Having low self-esteem
Having depression, anxiety, feelings of loneliness and isolation
Feeling wary or suspicious of others
Having physical illness
Having an increased risk of depression and substance abuse
(In extreme cases, having a higher risk of suicide, however, the reasons why a person may be at risk of suicide are extremely complicated)
