Combating bullying in schools and workplaces (the hospital) is a topic that we’ve heard a lot about, especially recently. When it comes to the work environment, bullying involves an abuse or misuse of power. Specifically, it refers to the repeated, unreasonable actions of an individual directed towards an employee, which are intended to intimidate, degrade, humiliate, undermine, or create a risk to the health or safety of the employee.

Workplace bullying behavior creates feelings of defenselessness and injustice in the victim and undermines an individual’s right to dignity at work. It’s important to distinguish bullying from aggression. Whereas aggression may involve a single act, bullying involves repeated attacks against the target, creating an on-going pattern of behavior.

“Tough” or “demanding” bosses are not necessarily bullies as long as they are respectful and fair, and their primary motivation is to obtain the best performance by setting high yet reasonable expectations for working safely.
