The Bully-Free Workplace: Stop Jerks, Weasels, and Snakes From Killing Your Organization

San Francisco, CA – There are some things you never learned at career day. Paramount among them is that you may have to work for an abusive boss at some point in your career. Bullies, aggressors, weasels, offenders, backstabbers, control freaks, snakes, tyrants, or abusers - regardless of what names we refer to them as, these individuals exhibit conduct workplace behavior that is beyond acceptable. Sometimes the abuse can be so subtle or covert that no one else notices.

The simple truth is that businesses need to address bullying to protect their bottom line. Written by pioneers of workplace bullying, THE BULLY-FREE WORKPLACE: Stop Jerks, Weasels and Snakes from Killing Your Organization (Wiley; 978-0-470-94220-8; May 2011) by Gary Namie and Ruth Namie is a much needed guidebook for employers that discusses workplace bullying from America's unrivaled leaders and creators of the workplace bullying consulting institute. Managers will learn how and why to stop bullying; prepare executives to lead the campaign and to resist undermining efforts of subordinates; and create a new, positive role for human resources.

Outlining the required steps, THE BULLY-FREE WORKPLACE includes information on how to create a preventive policy that brings consequences, like never before, when violated. The authors discourage half-hearted, short-term fixes that are prevalent today, and present their signature Blueprint methodology to successfully protect employee health and eradicate the psychological violence from organizations.

Speaking to the heart of managers who value people and challenge others to adopt that value, THE BULLY FREE WORKPLACE breaks through employers silence and denial about workplace bullying. It justifies action against bullying for bottom-line fiscal rewards, productivity, employee health, talent retention, and positioning as an employer of choice. Most important, the author's evidence-driven systemic blueprint/how-to guide describes exactly what to do and what to avoid in order to build a bullying-free workplace culture.
