Bullying and HR
As a Conflict Consultant, I can attest to the pressure and abuse HR has to deal with on a daily basis. Some my clients are HR professionals who call me for advice and guidance. HR professionals are between the rock and the hard place of having to take complaints and the confront the alleged bully. How could they not be victimized? Those who use bullying tactics are used to getting their way by intimidating others and they won’t stop at HR.
