About this Event

Contemporary Issues in Employment Relations Annual Lecture 2019

Keynote speaker, Professor Premilla D’Cruz

Silver jubilees, as with all milestones, are times for reflection. As research into workplace bullying completes a quarter of a century, it's worth pausing to take stock and ponder over several issues.

Workplace bullying research, initiated in Scandinavia and the UK and now spanning the globe, has yielded rich insights into prevalence, causes, process, consequences and those involved including targets, bullies, bystanders, leaders, HR managers, unionists, interventionists, significant others and so on, across nations and cultures, occupations, professions and sectors. Despite concerted research and intervention, including national legislation in some countries and a spotlight on the International Labour Organization (ILO) in recent years, the problem persists worldwide. This leads to numerous questions:

  • Is the phenomenon of workplace bullying being accurately grasped?
  • Why does this type of mistreatment persist despite evidence-based practice?
  • What is the best way of addressing this extreme workplace stress?

In this lecture, Professor Premilla D’Cruz from the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad will examine the conceptualisation of workplace bullying, the range of incidence rates across the world and the features which mark the phenomenon’s essential character. She will speak to the importance of interdisciplinary and global perspectives as well as touch on ethical underpinnings as some of the critical pointers of the way ahead.

The lecture will be followed by networking and light refreshments.
