Introduction

You might be thinking that bulling occurs only in grade school or in the playground.  But it's also in the workplace and in large corporations.

PART II: The Queen Bee Syndrome

TASA ID: 10544

Queen bee syndrome was first defined by G.L. Staines, T.E. Jayaratne, and C. Tavris in 1973. It describes a woman in a position of authority who views or treats subordinates more critically if they are female. This phenomenon has been documented by several studies. In another study, scientists from the University of Toronto speculated that the queen bee syndrome may be the reason that women find it more stressful to work for women managers; no difference was found in stress levels for male workers.

This article will focus on accidents and incidents due to slips and falls, cuts and burns and foreign objects found in food.  The following are keys to creating that system:

PART I: Why Workplace Bullying Is A Serious Problem

By: Lawrence J. Fennelly CPOI, CSSM & Marianna Perry CPP, CPOI

TASA ID: 10544

Workplace bullying is repeated inappropriate behavior, direct or indirect, whether verbal, physical or otherwise, conducted by one or more persons against another or others, at the place of work and/or in the course of employment, which could reasonably be regarded as undermining the individual’s right to dignity at work.
