The High Cost of Workplace Bullying

The truth is, workplace bullies are too expensive for employers to keep. Bullying costs individual workers, families,co-workers, companies, institutions, tax payers, government, and society.

"Bullies only try to hire, and they only tolerate, their own kind. When the unfit are hired and retained, there are direct costs with the damages they do and the costs of removing them, but there are also lost opportunity costs in terms of all the good that could have been done not being done because the non-bullies and competent were not hired.As Plato put it: “Those who seek power are invariably the least fit to hold and wield it.” Indeed it seems that personality disorders such as narcisism, megalomania, bullying and others are requisite for management positions in academia, business, government and even non-profits."
