Admins: We are advocates because bullying has devastating effects including psychological damage such as depression and anxiety, and physical damage such as headaches and loss of appetite. This leads to other negative effects such as social withdrawal which will affect friends and family also. In the case of workplace bullying an individual can be affected financially and career wise which can have lifelong effects. In the case of school bullying, school work can be affected which can also have lifelong consequences. This issue is highly overlooked and definitely needs more attention. This is why we are AntiBullying advocates. We started our page because there isn’t enough awareness of workplace bullying or bullying in general.
Another character in a different game, Vanellope, is told by the characters in her game (her colleagues) that she is a “glitch” and that she isn’t allowed to race with them. This again is verbal abuse and social exclusion. They also push her around – this is unwanted physical contact, and destroy a car that she built – this is tampering with her personal belongings. However, Vanellope cannot leave her game as she is a “glitch” . This is an example of being stuck in one job as she has nowhere else to go.
These stories, and other animations featured on this page, provide a perfect illustration for the purpose of AntiBullyingAtWork – to raise awareness of and stop workplace bullying.
Bullying is not OK, it can happen to anyone and victims have every right to stand up against it. There is no Laws against bullying at work (or bullying in general) and this needs to change. Please like this page to raise awareness of this, and to help put a stop to workplace bullying.
