Workplace bullying: not only a US problem

Studies in various countries have shown that toxic workplaces are not just a problem in the United States.  Offices worldwide appear to be breeding grounds for hostile behavior. 

A recent survey in Spain found that 14% of employees have suffered bullying at work, 47% of whom were bullied by their bosses.

Bad workplace behavior appears to be even more prevalent in other countries.  Close to two thirds of Australians say that they have been victims of bullying on the job, and in a survey conducted in 2006, 81% of British employees reported to have worked at toxic places.
