UPEI’s executive MBA (EMBA) program and the PEI Business Women’s Association are partnering on an event which focuses on workplace bullying. The presentation and networking event takes place on Wednesday, March 13, 5:00–7:00 pm in Schurman Market Square, Don and Marion McDougall Hall.
Jodi Murphy, a UPEI EMBA graduate and teacher with the Prince Edward Island English Language School Board will share her research findings on the current state of workplace bullying in Canada and the implications that this issue has on organizations. Some of her findings include the costs associated with workplace bullying, which come from loss of productivity, legal settlements, and loss of good employees who have been bullied and chose to leave the organization. Workplace bullying has negative effects on the target of bullying, the other employees who witness the incidents, the organization as a whole, and some believe there are societal consequences as well.
Admission is free and all are welcome to attend. For more information on the event, or UPEI’s executive MBA program, contact Grace McCourt at (902) 566-6474 or email@example.com
