What is the psychological cost of workplace bullying?

There is no place for workplace bullying, as this can have a negative impact on the victim as well as the company as a whole.

Unfortunately, there are still times when workplace bullying comes into play. When this happens, it is important for the issue to be put to rest as soon as possible. The longer it lingers the more of an impact it has.

Many people are unfamiliar with the psychological cost of workplace bullying. There is a cost to both the employer as well as the target victim.

For example, employer costs include: atmosphere of fear, low productivity, high turnover rate, increased healthcare costs, and the potential for a lawsuit.

On the employee side, things don't get any better. A victim of workplace bullying could face issues such as: stress, anxiety, insomnia, clinical depression, suicidal thoughts, self-destructive habits, thoughts of violence, and obsessing over the situation.

As you can see, the psychological cost of workplace bullying is not something to take lightly. This is extremely serious and should be treated as such by all people involved.

If people ever feel they are being bullied at work, the best thing they can do is report the problem. This may be all it takes to put it in the past once and for all. If the problem persists, however, it is time to consider additional action.

Remember this: You don't have to stand for any type of workplace bullying. You have the right to work in a professional environment in which there is no fear of what others may do to you.
