• Counteracting Cyberbullying in the Workplace

      EAPA - South Africa (2021-02-05)
      The standard definition of bullying is, “repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards an employee or a group of employees that creates a risk to their health and safety”. The uncertainty and constant change brought about by the coronavirus pandemic has already led to the increased risk of the psychosocial drivers that can result in bullying – and particularly cyberbullying. Examples of cyberbullying might include frequent interruptions or ‘talking over’ a colleague during virtual meetings, unkind emails or repeated and excessive emails from managers.
