This year’s campaign to combat bullying in the workplace is getting into gear. Ban Bullying At Work Day is now in its fifth year, and its stated aim is to raise awareness of bullying in the workplace for both workers and employers. Bullying costs UK businesses £18 billion per year and current research indicates that one in four people has experienced bullying in the workplace.

In 2007 the campaign will be encouraging people to ‘SPEAK OUT’ against bullying to address issues and create a productive working environment. Businesses and individuals can request their participation pack and find out more information at

Matt Witheridge, Operations Director,, said: “Following last year’s successful campaign we have been inundated from businesses and from individuals. People are beginning to recognise bullying behaviours and understand their negative impact on the workplace. This year we are taking the campaign up a level to an even wider audience and encourage people to support the campaign in their own workplaces.”

The campaign will include a poster campaign, an interactive CD ROM participation pack for companies, wristbands and other merchandise, the UK’s largest survey of attitudes to bullying, a Central London launch on the day itself (7 November), a series of round tables for business leaders and a charity golf day to raise funds for the campaign.
