Why are work settings worldwide increasingly vulnerable to bullying and harassment? Just the reports of incidents of bullying and harassment have significantly impacted many people’s sense of safety at work. The resulting fear and anxiety have created a forum for both productive and unproductive dialog.
Reactive vs Proactive; Often reactive solutions do not address the issues while being proactive can prompt initiative in others. Some employers react by planning for worst case scenarios, which often breeds an environment of increased vulnerability. Others react by facilitating dialogue that will explore ways to reduce risks and motivate employees to become part of these proactive efforts.
