Uzma Mukhtar

Abstract— This paper discusses the understanding of the workplace bullying concept in context of Asian countries and aims to find out relationship of workplace bullying with psychological risk and role of learning and training as moderator for psychological risk reduction caused by workplace bullying. Two hypotheses were formulated based on literature review. In order to test the hypotheses Data were collected from about 250 respondents of government institute based on simple random sampling. Presumption of data collection was based on Altman, B.A. study in which he emphasized and conclude that prior learning about workplace bullying in some shape is necessary [1]. To meet this presumption we filtered the employees by observing their understanding of the workplace bullying. As a result 250 responses were collected. In order to analyze data linear regression was conducted. Results show that workplace bullying is significantly related to psychological risk. In addition, learning and training may act as moderator to moderate the psychological risk due to workplace bullying.

Index Terms— Workplace bullying, learning, training, harrasment.
