Bullying is the ongoing, intentional targeting, intimidating and/or teasing of a person but one or several others. Bullying can occur in the workplace, at school, during sporting activities, or other groups. Being a target of bullying can have a direct impact on self confidence, self esteem, and work capacity. Bullying in the workplace can affect productivity, morale, and group dynamics.
