In this 3rd episode of the series on workplace bullying, I will share with you what are the antecedents and causes of workplace bullying. Researchers believe that both individual and organisational factors are antecedents of workplace bullying. For organisational factors, they include leadership behaviours, work design and compensation practices. For individual factors, personality traits and sexual orientation can lead to individuals being bullied at work.
This episode is part of a series of episodes in which I will be talking about workplace bullying. My interest in this topic is both personal and also academic. I hope by sharing my perspectives in workplace bullying, I can help individuals and organisations to have a frank conversation about this issue.
