ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study which investigated the question of whether national cultural differences affect employees' perceptions of bullying in the workplace. The study, "Consequences of workplace bullying on employee identification and satisfaction among Australians and Singaporeans," by Jennifer Loh, Simon Lloyd D. Restubog, and Thomas J. Zagenczyk, was published in the "Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology." It found that employee attitudes worsened as a result of bullying in all cases, but the employees from more egalitarian cultures reacted in a more strongly negative way.
