NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Unfortunately, bullies rarely stay on the playground, and emotional abuse happens all too often in the workplace. According to a CareerBuilder survey, 28% of workers have felt bullied at work and 19% of those workers left their jobs as a result. If you’re dealing with someone at your office who belittles you, harasses you or tries to take credit for your work, here’s how to stand up for yourself and put an end to their childish behavior.
Make sure your perception is reality
You should never blame yourself for being bullied, but you should step back and take a look at the entire situation, says Elaine Auerbach, managing partner at executive search firm Kaye Bassman International.
“Sometimes if you’ve just joined an organization, you may not understand the company culture. Until you become one of the group, the nuances with some of the office interactions may be lost on you,” she says.
