Episode 002 - Why do I want to talk about workplace bullying?

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.

In this episode, I will share with you the reasons why I want to talk about workplace bullying and what are the different definitions of workplace bullying.
I will also touch briefly on legislation and the concept of intent as a way to determine workplace bullying. For more information on workplace bullying research, please visit https://www.iawbh.org/
