Why are we getting so many bullying complaints?

The news is full of stories of the nightmare boss and bullying complaints.
Conscientious bosses feel increasingly unable to discipline employees who are under performing.   In the back of their minds is the nagging concern :-
“Will I be accused of bullying or, even worse, discrimination?”
No-one wants to turn back the clock on bullying, but we do have to recognise that a minority of employees are treated as ‘untouchable’ because of ‘equality legislation’.
Genuine equality is about giving everyone an opportunity to perform.
How did performance management go so wrong?
Perception is reality when it comes to deciding what can and can’t be done in performance management.  You will never hear anything in the news about employees whose performance improved, or about disciplinary and dismissal processes that resulted in no fuss.
Why not start moving forward today?

About the Author Annabel Kaye

We founded Irenicon in 1980 to help employers make employment law work for them. We were always a mixed disciplinary practice – something quite revolutionary at the time. Over the years we have worked with some wonderful organisations, pushing the boundaries of how employment law can really be made to work without restricting the flow of the organisation.
