Workplace Bullying

What is workplace bullying? How does it arise? Joshua Yim, CEO of ACHIEVE Group, shared with #TodayOnline that perceptions in workplace cultures often have a bearing on whether employees regard rough behaviour/ language as bullying.

However, the majority of today’s workforce believes very much in respect. Companies thus need to have clear policies and workplace guidelines on what actions and behaviours are not condoned in the workplace, and should remind employees regularly about these. It is also important to ensure that there are clear feedback channels that employees can turn to.
