The survey among 16,517 workers in 53 countries by recruitment website Monster said a quarter claimed bullying has affected their performance at work, the Daily Express reported.

Experts fear that this is likely to affect the morale of the whole workplace, drive out the best staff and hit profits.

Some 83 per cent of European respondents claimed to have been physically or emotionally bullied.

This compares with 65 per cent in the Americas and 55 per cent in Asia.

Spanish workers are the most likely to be physically attacked and Dutch workers the most likely to cry.

Belgium has the lowest rates of bullying at 38 per cent, the study found.
