Call for support for “Ban bullying at work day”
Over one million people took part in Ban Bullying At Work Day in 2006. The day is spearheaded by The Andrea Adams Trust, a non-political, not for profit charity aimed at tackling workplace bullying. The trust is pleased to announce that the 2007 campaign – starting on 7 November – will be bigger than ever.
Now in its fifth year, the campaign is dedicated to raising 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 online.
Matt Witheridge, operations director for the campaign says: “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 (which can be accessed online, wristbands and other merchandise, the UK’s largest survey of attitudes to bullying, a Central London launch on the day itself, a series of round tables for business leaders and for the very first a charity golf day to raise funds for the campaign.
