Bullying is an activity that shouldn’t happen anywhere, especially beyond the playground. In a perfect world, intimidation wouldn’t be used as a method to establish dominance and cover insecurity, but then again, this world isn’t perfect. People can be bullies, and sometimes that bully is your boss.
Any great business knows that the long-term success of any company is heavily dependent on worker quality and worker loyalty. As hard as it is to measure the full value of quality workers, we all know that whom you hire is very important. The economic cost of workers is staggering: they influence not only the hard numbers regarding a company’s profit – but also things that are hard to quantify like customer relations and customer satisfaction.
For businesses to thrive in today’s economy, finding and retaining rockstar employees is crucial. When turnover is high, employers face the increased costs associated with recruiting, hiring and training replacements. There are also the costs that are hard to quantify – declines in productivity, low morale, and damage to company culture.
