It’s almost here! Global Workplace Bullying Awareness Week 16th -22nd October 2022. It started in USA with Gary Namie, PhD and then Linda Crockett, Canada. Linda invited other countries including Ireland. Judith Carmody CPA representing Ireland joined this POWERFUL global event in 2019 with one mission to create PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFE WORKPLACES. Our purpose is to create awareness that an employee can no longer be at psychological risk, injury and danger in the workplace. Organisations must ensure the right to safety for every employee in the workplace. The message is simple only psychological safe workplaces will be tolerated but this is only the beginning of a global movement. Let’s start this week together and show support and unity. ONE VOICE. Ireland 4th year joining Workplace Bullying Awareness Week 2022.
Behaviour in Organisations Research Group (BORG) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners for collaboration and knowledge sharing in all aspects of organizational behaviour. This group stimulates research across a range of areas that include leadership, workplace behaviours, bullying and harassment, and seeks to make pragmatic recommendations in order to eradicate bullying.
BORG advocates for a deeper understanding of the impact of organizational culture and practices on health and well-being as well as person centred and empowering leadership practices in organizations. We challenge the pervasive and deleterious impact of new managerialism; neoliberalism and performativity on organizational culture and practices. Through this, we promote well-being, dignity and respect for all.
