This report presents the results of two surveys commissioned by the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment. The first, a survey of individuals at work was designed to ascertain the incidence, correlates and characteristics of bullying in Irish workplaces in 2006-7 and is a follow-up to a similar survey in 2001. The survey found that, overall, 7.9% of those at work have experienced bullying in the past 6 months. The second, a survey of public and private sector employers, was designed to explore how organisations viewed the problem of bullying in their workplaces. Employing organisations were asked about the range of policies and procedures they had in place to deal with bullying, as well as general organisational characteristics.
