Anti-Bullying policies – not worth the paper they’re written on

policies

There was an interesting article in the Sydney Morning Herald (online) yesterday titled, Why aren’t bullying policies effective?

In a nutshell, the article discusses one of  the biggest hurdles to the effectiveness of anti-bullying policies in the workplace…when senior people in the organisation don’t enforce them.

All too often anti-bullying policies are relegated to a shelf somewhere to gather dust.

This article is ‘spot on’. A change in workplace culture is the only way to effectively eradicate bullying from the workplace, and that “Change has got to come from the top”.

We’re interested in knowing…is the anti-bullying policy in your workplace promoted, or is it gathering dust?
