ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of a survey on the existence of bullying among managers in British companies. Levels of bullying seem to be higher in public sector organizations than in private sector organizations. Findings indicated that the most common forms of bullying are misuse of power or position, verbal insults and disparaging by overloading or criticism. The least common form of bullying is physical intimidation or violence. Results showed that the top reason for bullying in the workplace is the lack of management skills.
