Tailored To Your Needs And Run At Your Site

Why Should You Run This Workshop?

Protostar UK tackling bullying at work

Bullying at work is far more common than many managers and business owners believe. Unfortunately it is often ignored or simply not noticed until it is too late. Apart from our Stress Management workshop, this is by far the most cost effective event you can run, in terms of preventing punitive legal costs.


By running this event for your managers and rolling out a meaningful policy and process, even if you do later receive a legal claim for bullying, you might be able to mitigate your penalty, by showing that you have been proactive in prevention.



If you are convinced that bullying is not taking place at your company, then you might be interested to know that recent research would indicate that statistically, your view might be wrong.


  • More than two million people at work consider themselves as being bullied.
  • 80 % of calls to The National Bullying Helpline are from the Public Sector.
  • 18.9 million working days are lost each year as a direct result of workplace bullying.
  • 43.5% of employers do not have a policy to deal with workplace bullying.
  • 93.1% of all personnel practitioners say that bullying is occurring in their own organisations.
  • 82.2% say that weakness in management is the prime reason for bullying.
  • 49% of managers have suffered bullying themselves.


Bullying takes various forms and is often put down to "strong management" or "laddish behaviour and high jinks", however the effects on individuals can be extreme and the costs to an employer at tribunal, considerable. The poor PR from a successful claim of bullying can adversely affect business prospects and deter would be job applicants.


This seminar highlights both the legal and practical issues related to bullying leading to a practical action plan for delegates to take back to their workplace. It will be applicable to organisations that need to tackle bullying and those who want be proactive and ensure it is never an issue.
