Once again we had the pleasure of working with Audrina Bigos, Fox News Charlotte. This time around we discussed the growing concern over office bullies and how this behavior can impact the workplace. This is a real problem for some people as an estimated 50+ Million workers have acknowledged they have encountered some type of bullying at work. So what can we do? Be proactive, let employees know right away that a positive and professional behavior is expected and that each co-worker should be treated with respect. Foster a team environment at all times and keep a close eye on any conflicts that may arise, always keeping an open door policy. From a mangers standpoint be prepared to step in and handle these type of issues swiftly, again promoting a positive workplace built on respect.
Most of us old enough to have teenagers can remember the days before chatting it up on the Internet. How many of us would sit on the phone and talk with friends? As fast as we would hang up with one we would be calling another. Nowadays, teens have a much more convenient method of keeping up with their friends – Facebook. It allows them to carry on multiple conversations and share everything from favorite photos and videos to all sorts of other information.
