Workplace Bullying: The "Quiet Epidemic" in Corporate America

Bullying in the workplace is 4x more prevalent than sexual harassment and discrimination combined (WBI)

Join us on Thursday, June 26th for this revealing presentation on workplace bullying. 

Ron will explain why it has become known as the “quiet epidemic”, how to recognize bullying behavior, plus the psychological motivations of a bully.  He will provide a quantitative analysis to show why bullies are too expensive to keep on the payroll.

By the end of the evening, you will learn,

  • How to define a workplace bully and how to recognize the behavior tactics used to dehumanize their target.
  • How bullying behavior can create a toxic working environment and the impact it has on the workforce psychologically, physically, and behaviorally.
  • Preparations to follow before confronting a bully.
  • The process of quantifying a bully’s behavior in determining whether he/she is costing the company too much to be kept on the payroll.
  • Introduction as to the Workplace Bill that 26 state legislatures are currently working to get it enacted into law against bullying in the workplace.
