Bullying and harassment are widespread issues in the workplace and can best be tackled using mediation, training and employee awareness campaigns, according to XpertHR research. Although two-thirds of respondents say that this type of behaviour rarely occurs, there is room for employers to improve employee understanding of the issue and to ensure that breaches can be reported privately, and investigated in a skilled and independent manner.
