If you have been through workplace bullying, whether it was mental or emotional bullying, you definitely know how it feels. You probably didn’t wanna wake up each day with the thought of going to work again. You might have experienced daily anxiety or an elevated level of stress.
According to the Workplace Bullying Institute, bullying at work is a repeated mistreatment addressed to a coworker in the form of threatening, humiliating, verbal abuse (including yelling), work sabotage or intimidating. A National Survey conducted in 2014, found out that 27% of Americans experienced workplace bullying.
Moreover, the health effects of workplace bullying are not encouraging at all.
A Zogby International Survey found out that 45% of people who were bullied at work suffer from debilitating anxiety, panic attacks, cardiovascular disease and post traumatic stress disorder.
