Measuring bystander intervention in workplace bullying

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Although bystanders are well placed to intervene in workplace bullying, academic evidence suggests they are unlikely to do so. For over 40 years the Bystander Effect has been researched and attributes bystander reticence to diffusion of responsibility; audience inhibition and social influence. What is long overdue is a strategy to counter the bystander effect, empowering the underused force of the onlookers to cut-off workplace bullying promptly, neutralising escalation. We seek to reverse the direction of research to test what interventions would encourage bystanders to intervene.
