Abstract:

The aim of this ongoing project is to study and compare perceptions of and reactions to workplace bullying in 14 different countries around the globe. How individuals understand workplace behaviour is influenced by the values and beliefs of the larger culture or nation in which the activity has taken place. Values and beliefs influence the degree to which behaviours are viewed as legitimate, acceptable, and effective (Javidan, Mansour, Dorfman, Sully de Luque, & House, 2006).

What is perceived as workplace bullying in one culture likely differs from other cultures because of differing value systems, communication norms, hierarchical relationships, gender schemas, and the larger institutional context (Fox, 2012). Similarly national differences in institutional, legal, and organizational rules and regulations result in distinct approaches to workplace bullying.
