Are you facing mobbing at work? It’s an unwelcome, psychologically destructive, and harmful behavior that can leave its victims feeling anxious, frustrated, powerless, or threatened. Unfortunately, workplace mobbing is increasingly common in all kinds of workplaces worldwide – but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing one can do about it. In this blog post, we’ll go through exactly what to do if you’re being mobbed at work so that you can reclaim some control over your situation and move forward with your career on a strong footing.
Try to calm down and not take the bad behavior of your colleagues personally
If someone criticizes you, it is probably false and has nothing to do with your abilities. It is because the person who said it is weak. They are trying to scare you so they can control you. So, stay calm and don’t listen to them. You don’t have to explain yourself to them. They are the ones who need to explain their behavior.
Try to talk to those who offend you
If you can, talk to the person who is bullying you. He might not know that his behavior is making you feel bad. Think about what you want to say before you talk to him. Tell him what is happening and why you don’t like it. Be polite and calm. Tell him you will not let him bully you without doing anything about it. It might scare him and make him stop bullying you.
Record all facts of bullying
To stop being bullied, try to record when it happens. You can use a voice recorder or video. Take pictures of mean posts or messages, too. It will help show that you are being bullied. You don’t need to go to court with this evidence, but you can use it to confront the bully and make them stop bullying you.
Contact a psychotherapist
Feel free to see a therapist if your mental health has already been harmed. There is nothing to be ashamed of. In addition, a good specialist can help you. You can tell them about your experience and maybe even get an action plan.
Find out the company’s policy on bullying
It is very important to know what your company’s policies are when it comes to bullying. Many companies have a zero-tolerance policy towards such behavior, so they might be able to help you with this problem. You can also talk to a trusted manager or supervisor who can guide you in the right direction.
Submit a formal complaint
Tell the manager or another adult at work if you talked to the person who was mean to you and it did not help. You can sue them if that does not help, but talk to a lawyer first. It is hard to prove that someone was mean to you, so it might help if you have recordings of what happened or written conversations.
