Understanding and addressing workplace bullying during COVID-19

Experiences of bullying are likely to look different during the pandemic. Bullying in a physical workplace can sometimes be noticeable. With staff now working differently, instances of bullying may not be as obvious. Bullying is unacceptable, where ever it happens. It is profoundly distressing for the individual and has negative consequences for teams and workplaces.

Our guide on understanding the drivers of bullying during COVID-19 helps managers and employees understand:

  • the organisational drivers and causes of workplace bullying
  • which staff might currently be at greater risk of bullying
  • how bullying can present in different work environments
  • how to respond to bullying when working remotely or in frontline environments.
