Research Shows Bullying Can Start a Cycle of Workplace Misconduct

Research out of the University of East Anglia (UEA) indicates that being bullied in the workplace can have a negative impact on the victim’s health and lead to a cycle of workplace misconduct where they behave badly towards others in the workplace.

This research is significant because it’s the first to research the possible negative impact on the behaviour of the victims themselves.

The study was led by Dr. Roberta Fida from UEA, working with colleagues from Coventry University, and universities in Italy and the US, whose findings suggest that anger and fear caused by workplace bullying can lead to misconduct.

While the research involved participants in the healthcare industry, nurses in particular, the findings can be translated to other industries especially those where bullying has been identified as a major problem. It also highlights the importance of addressing bullying at the root, to avoid the negative cycle that stems from it.
