There are different corporate cultures in the United Kingdom. Some are lax places where employees and managers are free to speak their mind and converse about different topics. The employees are able to express their opinions, even when they believe the supervisor may be wrong.
Despite the best efforts of organisational leaders and human resource staff, many work teams are plagued by the presence of a workplace bully. Generally speaking, workplace bullies use relational aggression tactics to intimidate others, using non-physical, non-violent methods to break down the victim’s self-esteem and professional reputation.
