Sensitive topic though, First of all, we must understand what exactly the Bullying term meant for?

Definition according to THE BAR ASSOCIATION OF INDIA

“Bullying means systematically and chronically inflicting physical hurt or psychological distress on one or more students or employees. It is further defined as unwanted and repeated written, verbal, or physical behavior, including any threatening, insulting, or dehumanizing gesture, by a student or adult, that is severe or pervasive enough to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational environment; cause discomfort or humiliation; or unreasonably interfere with the individual’s school performance or participation; and may involve but is not limited to: teasing, social exclusion, threat, intimidation, stalking, physical violence, theft, sexual, religious, or racial harassment, public humiliation, or destruction of property.”

Bullying in the workplace can be hard to identify, mainly if the victim is new to the workplace. Mostly superior bullies an employee. Employees are happier and more productive in a company that vigorously prevents and deals with workplace bullying.

Here are the few ways to stop bullying at workplace

1. Have a clear anti-bullying policy that employees of all levels are aware of
2. Train and educate employees about workplace bullying and how to recognize it
3. Set up a medium that employees at any level can use the medium to report bullying
4. Encourages employees to speak up openly
5. Never disregard a complaint simply
6. Take immediate action if you get to know about the bullying
