Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI): Support, Training, Solutions & Advocacy

For 26 years the Workplace Bullying Institute has focused on the prevention and correction of abusive conduct at work through education of targets & the public, training of professionals, creation of evidence-based solutions for organizations and unions, research by WBI and others, and advocacy for a new law.

What is workplace bullying?

WBI definition: workplace bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment by one or more employees of an employee: abusive conduct that takes the form of verbal abuse; or behaviors perceived as threatening, intimidating, or humiliating; work sabotage; or in some combination of the above.
Abuse at work is the only form of abuse in America that is not yet taboo. All other forms have been condemned – abuse of children, spouses, partners – while bullying at work is still considered a normal, inevitable or even a necessary business practice.
