At the workplace, as in any social setting, a certain amount of teasing occurs naturally (and sometimes, its not teasing but workplace harassment). But when it becomes insistent and repetitive, causing severe stress to the target, it crosses over to the line of bullying.
Premilla D’Cruz and Ernesto Norohna, Organizational Behaviour professors at IIM Ahmedabad, had conducted a study on workplace bullying among the ITeS employees in India, in 2010. The findings reveal without a doubt that bullies at office are not rare. According to the survey, “A range of bullying behaviours were described including isolation, personal attacks, verbal threats and task-related difficulties.”
Premilla D’Cruz, who also authored the book Workplace Bullying in India, says that while bullies at office do exist in India, it is hard to determine the extent of it in the absence of empirical data.
“Bullying is basically emotional abuse. It is a persistent, targeted kind of hostility or intimidation that one person or group shows to another person or group. It occurs with a certain frequency and makes the target feel powerless to defend himself or herself,” clarifies Premilla.
