An excellent article on Workplace Bullying
It is worth taking the time to read the following article on workplace bullying, which is referred to in French culture as “Slow Poison”. This is a somewhat accurate description of both the process which occurs in toxic workplace cultures which are left to thrive and the effect which long term exposure to bullying has on the body and mind, a long and excruciating process!
The underlying message of this article is that bullying needs to be address as bullying (not a workplace health and safety issue, discrimination, unfair dismissal/unlawful termination) but as bullying itself.
We at Victims of CSIRO have stated publicly on numerous occasions, that unless bullies are held personally accountable for their actions (and those who support their inappropriate and highly damaging workplace behaviour), then bullying behaviour will continue to thrive throughout Australian workplaces.
If people are provided with a strong impetus to change workplace culture, then workplace culture will change!
