 workplace bullying

BULLY, INC. is an unforgiving environment where the tyranny of the few is allowed to pollute the everyday experience of the many.

It costs.

From the estimated £20 billion lost to the economy alone each year in the UK to the human cost of day in day out misery and rat-on-a-wheel drudgery and fear.

In the mold-breaking new guide from Leamington Books, Peter Burnett and Jonathan Richards dissect the issue of workplace bullying, a problem which impacts one in three of the nation’s workforce.

  • Can you identify this behaviour in yourself?
