The research by recruitment website Monster.co.uk found that 44 per cent ofpeople had experienced bullying at work, while 21 per cent of respondents saidit was still happening. One in 10 respondents said that while they were not victims of harassmentthemselves, others were being bullied within their organisation. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) terms harassmentas any unwanted conduct that has the effect of violating dignity or creating anintimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment. Employers have a common law duty of care, and responsibilities under healthand safety legislation to take action to combat bullying, as well asresponsibilities under discrimination law. Rebecca Clake, organisation and resourcing adviser at the CIPD, saidemployers should create an environment that was comfortable if they wanted tosee high-performance levels. “A well-designed policy statement is an important first step inaddressing harassment, and should cover all the complexities of intimidatingbehaviour, including bullying,” she said. “To be most effective, policy statements should be agreed with unionrepresentatives.
