1. Talk to our external independent Bullying Advisor
The Bullying Advice Service is a free, completely confidential telephone service and our external independent Bullying Advisor is trained to work with people who have, or who are currently experiencing bullying at work. Sometimes just talking about it can help you begin to understand and process your experience. It can also be a useful way for you to think about your options or any actions you may want to take.
If you would like to contact the service, you can make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org You can also use this service to access advice for a colleague or for guidance on how to deal with a bullying claim reported to you.
2. Make a record
The first thing anyone who is concerned about being bullied at work should do is to start creating a log describing the behaviour they are experiencing or witnessing. Documenting your experiences can be an enormously helpful way of helping you understand what you’re going through and helps identify patterns and the seriousness of the behaviour.
Having a record will also help you if you decide that you want to take things further. It helps you with recall and to build a more compelling argument.
