Almost daily we hear news of workplace bullying, stress and harassment cases in NZ.

Are these behaviours getting worse or are more people now feeling empowered to speak up?

Either way, the cost to businesses who are not working towards positive workplace environments are at risk.

The impact of a negative workplace is far greater than many care to admit or even realise.

Side effects of a negative workplace can include:

⇰ Increase in mental health concerns of staff
⇰ High turnover of staff (usually good staff)
⇰ Loss of productivity
⇰ High retraining and induction costs of new staff
⇰ Poor public perception (Brand Damage)

…and so on.

Employers, managers, supervisors and team leaders all need to take ownership of workplace environments and ensure that everyone at work feels safe physically and mentally.
