About this Research Topic
Despite the known costs and consequences of bullying and harassment and robust research efforts, effective communication and intervention strategies remain elusive. Additionally, COVID-19 has changed the nature of how we do work. Currently, very little is known about how bullying and harassment have been impacted by shifts in the nature of how and where we work. More broadly, the focus of this Research Topic is to explore new directions in workplace bullying and harassment research. Determining how to best address workplace mistreatment in organizations may require innovative and creative approaches to studying the nuances, dynamics, and intervention possibilities available to targets, bystanders, and organizations. The aim of this Research Topic is to develop a collection of articles that represent current and new research trends to advance our thinking about workplace bullying and harassment. Particular themes may include, but are not limited to, the following:
• communication-based solutions
• intervention strategies
• applying new theories to explore these dynamics using a unique lens
• the impact of COVID-19 on workplace bullying and harassment
• sexual harassment
• racial and gender dynamics
• policy development
• the role of human resources
• innovative research strategies to explore bullying and harassment.
