13 November 2017: Anti-bullying week
Anti-bullying week is being held between 13 and 17 November 2017. It’s organised by Anti-Bullying Alliance.
Events taking place throughout the week can be followed on social media using #antibullyingweek and #abw17.
This year, the theme will promote difference and equality in schools with the tag-line ‘All Different, All Equal’.
Bullying and harassment means any unwanted behaviour that makes someone feel intimidated, degraded, humiliated or offended.
It can occur face-to-face, in written communications, by phone or through email.
It is not necessarily always obvious or apparent to others, and may happen in the workplace without an employer’s awareness.
Examples of bullying / harassing behaviour can include:
- spreading malicious rumours or insulting someone
- exclusion or victimisation
- unfair treatment
- deliberately undermining a competent worker by constant criticism
Here’s some useful tools for members:
- Bullying & harassment at work: a guide for managers and employers
- Bullying & harassment at work: a guide for employees
