Workplace bullying costs $1b to business – expert
An expert believes workplace bullying is a $1 billion problem for New Zealand business.
AUT Professor and expert in organisational issues in occupational health Tim Bentley says it is a much bigger problem than most people realise.
He says his research suggests almost one in five people have experienced workplace bullying.
“We have about an 18% prevalence [in New Zealand]. That compares with between 2% and 20% using the same measures internationally and that’s not good.”
