It was reported that one out of four employees is affected by workplace bullying which threatens civility at work. Furthermore, there is also a misconception that bullying is always overt, as there are times and situations where bullying behavior can be subtle, slow, and insidious which, most of the time, goes off undetected.

The problem with bullying is that the perpetrator has the intention to control the target’s behavior usually for personal gains, agenda, or self-serving motives. They often use a variety of subtle and not so subtle ways to control others emotionally, psychologically, and even physically. And an organization should be aware of the negative impacts of bullying and must think of workplace bullying solutions immediately.

In building a civil workplace, it is essential to take note of subtle signs of bullying in order to prevent such issue from ever happening. These subtle signs include deceit, intimidation, isolation, ignoring, rationalization, minimization, diversion, guilt, undermining, mood swings, blaming, and seduction. Some even pit employees against each other, withhold information, changing expectations, or create a feeling of uselessness. Identifying these subtle signs would be essential in drafting an anti-bullying corporate policy or laying down several workplace bullying prevention programs.
