Bullying is never okay and raising your voice against bullies is significant and to address them is equally important as well. Yesterday the former HR director at the Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership spoke about the bullying he said he have been encountered and victimized by the organization.
More from their side of the story, Sandy Wilkie, 57, said the experience led to depression and a four-month signature job. He said he was back in action to be told that his role no longer exists. He now expects to receive a settlement from NHS Highland, which is part of the partnership, and to establish a “healing process” to deal with allegations of bullying.
While Mr. Wilkie told The Herald that the organization was an “absolute nest for snakes”. While, reports show that accusations of bullying raised in 2018 in NHS Highland were the subject of a review led by John Sturrock QC, with a focus on examining the issues raised by employees working in the Highlands.
In addition, the results of the review, published last year, indicated that hundreds of health workers had been subjected to inappropriate health board behavior. In May this year, NHS Highland offered bullied employees an “independent healing process” to address their concerns.
After hearing a lot of bullying at the workplace the study was conducted by the Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership conducted a survey of employees about bullying. Of the 1,500 employees surveyed, 508 answered, and 68% of them said they had experienced bullying and harassment. The partnership includes Argyll and Bute Council and NHS Highland.
The results of the review, published last year, indicated that hundreds of health workers had been subjected to inappropriate health board behavior.
It is considered that bullying is at work due to jealous and worker does this to save their job or show anger towards their co-workers. Let us know what are your thoughts on it? Comment below!
