Beyondbullying is committed to the prevention and management of workplace bullying.
Beyondbullying was developed in 2007 when the understanding of workplace bullying was in its infancy.
Since then we have contributed to increased awareness of what defines bullying, its causes and consequences, as well as what works in terms of interventions. We view workplace bullying as a workplace health and safety (WHS) issue which needs to be prevented and managed as part of an organisation’s WHS duty of care using a risk management approach.
Our core aims are to
- Promote awareness of workplace bullying
- Facilitate discussion regarding workplace bullying and related issues
- identify resources and information about workplace bullying
- Provide corporate services in relation to workplace bullying
- Conduct and report evidence based research into workplace bullying
WHAT IS BULLYING AT WORK?
There are many different definitions or descriptions of workplace bullying, though there is growing consensus on the most accepted inclusions in the definition. Different jurisdictions around the world have begun to define workplace bullying for their legislative and industrial frameworks. Much work has been done on this recently in Australia.
