A recent U.S. study estimates 1 in 5 American workers has experienced destructive bullying in the past year.
Workplace incivility can be defined as a rude or discourteous act, and/or the practice of behaviors that undermine the credibility and productivity of others. Repeated incidents of workplace harassment and bullying create and enforce an imbalance of power within the workplace. Recent research indicates bullied employees spend between 10% and 52% of their time at work worrying about how they are being treated. These employees spend time defending themselves and networking for support, thinking about the situation, experiencing de-motivation and stress, and often end up taking sick leave due to stress-related illnesses.
