Workplace change and bullying

Australian research has found links between organisational restructuring and workplace bullying.  The study looked at bullying in the Australian public sector, finding that although bullying is presented as a problem of the individual,  organisational factors such as restructuring actually create the power relations needed to facilitate and support it. The research also notes that in some instances, the organisation itself, through restructuring policies and practices, was perceived to be the perpetrator.
