Workplace Bullying has been on the increase.  Not only in the United States, but in other countries as well, there are growing concerns about workplace bullying.  Nearly a third of the workplace experiences some form of workplace bullying.  Usually the infliction is psychological and not physical.  Nearly seventy percent of those who report workplace bullying say it comes from their bosses.

According to an article in the Telegraph Journal….

Researchers from Canada’s University of New Brunswick are studying the effects workplace bullying has on men.

She said the verbal harassment, intimidation, threats and rude comments can lead to an increase in absenteeism, reduced productivity and a high turnover. The high turnover results in increased costs to replace and recruit new employees, MacIntosh said, as well as costs to the company’s reputation. MacIntosh said the study will be ongoing for approximately six months.
