Overview

The rise of online networking and the use of social media has seen the growth in a new type of bullying. Cyber bullying is any form of bullying, harassment or victimisation online. It can spill from on-screen to off-screen and affect the face-to-face interactions between colleagues at work and away from work.

Cyber bullying can happen in a number of ways: inappropriate photographs may be posted; offensive or threatening comments might be made; or sensitive personal information could be revealed. This could be done accidentally or vindictively.

Cyber bullying can make people feel very distressed and alone.

Employers need to deal with cyber bullying, as it can be as damaging as any other kind of bullying. If left unchecked or handled badly, it can create serious problems for organisations, individuals and teams such as:

  • poor morale and poor employee relations
  • poor performance / lost productivity
  • absence /resignations
  • loss of respect for managers and supervisors.

This event is aimed at businesses located in Coventry as the activity forms part of the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Support Programme, which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Places are limited to two delegates per company
