Workplace bullying not only affects the psychological wellbeing of workers but also can lead to a loss in productivity and substantially impact on an organisation financially. Statistics have shown that workers who are psychologically distressed because of workplace bullying take up to four times as many sick days per month as unaffected workers, and can underperform by up to 154 per cent. This can cost an organisation, on average, $6300 per annum. Learning Seat provides online adaptive learning training courses for workplace bullying.
