The Cost of Bullying, Mobbing, and Harassment to Organizations

The O&P profession, which started as a trade, has worked hard over the last few decades to progress as a medical profession by increasing the educational standards and improve clinical business models, yet in many ways, older behavior patterns still seem to persist. “Apprentice bullying,” or ritual hazing as a rite of passage in a male-dominated profession, still shows signs of existence (Riggall, 2017).
Since no peer-reviewed literature on the topic exists for O&P, it is necessary to establish a baseline upon which to build future research, and reveal the cause and effect of bullying, mobbing, and harassment in the profession. This research should appeal to business owners and managers to show that a positive work environment equals profit. Can businesses afford to have leadership that costs a company profit?
This model of research and information translates to the medical school and professional offices. I can further detail this for the medical school community.
