A report at the BBC has found that bullying in the work place at the BBC has become much more prominent.
In its Respect At Work Review, the BBC has said that it will overhaul its policies and remote contractual gagging clauses to make it easier to speak out and BBC director general Tony Hall said he wanted “zero tolerance of bullying”.
Bullying or harassment can happen face-to-face, by letter, email or by phone and can include spreading malicious rumors, unfair treatment, picking on someone, regularly undermining a competent worker and denying someone’s training or promotion opportunities.
