5 Ways To Survive The Office Bully from foxbusiness.com
This week is Freedom from Workplace Bullying week across the nation, and here are Haber's five points for dealing with a bully in your workplace.
No. 1: Define your culture. The culture in your business has to come from the top. Are you willing to take a stand when the values of the culture are broken?" If the person running the company doesn't take a stand on the culture, there is a greater likelihood that bullying behavior may occur.
No. 2: Train your workers. Have a training system in place for bullying and conflict resolution. This sets the tone, and allows workers to feel safe. If a company hasn't decided to create awareness or training, people may be uncomfortable to report. With training if issues do come up, workers will know how to handle them.
No. 3: Reporting incidents. Be sure there is a way for employees to safely report any and all incidents of bullying to higher ups. It can create tremendous stress when businesses don't have safe reporting in place. Even in family businesses, or businesses that may not have an HR department, there has to be one team member that manages this -- an identified person who employees can talk to without fear of retribution.
No. 4: Investigating incidents. Investigate all incidents once reported. Some firms go so far as to hire independent firms to investigate so that workers feel safe and less pressured. When a company is dedicated to rooting out this stuff, people realize they care about how their workers feel.
No. 5: Follow through. Once investigations are through, take the necessary actions be it disciplining workers, firing or more. This shows you care, and take things seriously. This is critical if you want people to have trust in your company and in you.
