What can employers do to prevent and respond to bullying?
One in four employees in New Zealand say that they have been bullied at work.
Bullying has a negative effect in people’s mental and physical health, can damage the culture and brand of a business, increase absenteeism and reduce employee retention and business productivity.
Bullying is not a one-off or occasional rude behaviour, giving constructive feedback, advice or peer review, warning or disciplining workers in line with the business, differences in opinion or personality clashes.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, employers must make sure that their workers are healthy and safe at work. This includes managing the risks of bullying.
