 Office Nightmares: Workplace Bullying Rampant in the UK

Bullying at the office is more common than once thought. For instance, a recent survey has revealed that one in every seven Britons employed in the public sector is bullied at the workplace.

According to the YouGov survey for the Trades Union Congress (TUC), more than a fifth of workers said bullying is a problem where they work, compared to one in ten in the private sector and eight in every hundred doing voluntary work.

"Every organization needs to have an anti-bullying policy, and every manager should ensure that there is zero-tolerance of bullying either by line managers or workmates," the Mirror quoted Brendan Barber, TUC general secretary, as saying.

"It is not the low paid who are most likely to say they are bullied," the survey said.

"Those earning less than 20,000 pounds report much less bullying than those earning between 20,000 and 60,000."

Nearly 16 percent of men, compared to 12 percent of women, said that they have had to put up with abuse in the workplace.
