Valerie Cade is recognized world-wide as one of the top experts on the subject of Workplace Bullying.
In Canada, one in six employees are bullied, according to the Canada Safety Council. Employers are beginning to take steps to make bullying as unthinkable as sexual harassment or drunkenness. In addition, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan have made workplace bullying illegal.
In this recent Globe and Mail article, Valerie explains that “those who feel they have been bullied should file a claim not just to human resources but also to higher decision-making authorities in the company. In addition, department managers should commit their whole team to sign up for anti-bullying training led by someone with a background in organizational development and the politics of people in the workplace.”
