The WBI 2017 National Survey

$4,380 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 22 months
Abused and bullied workers rely on the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI) to confirm they are not crazy or worthless. The WBI national scientific prevalence surveys provide the statistical proof of their sanity. Workplace bullying in the U.S. is an epidemic! Past surveys in 2007 , 2010 and 2014   provide the proof.  Follow the links to see past survey results.

Further, survey results are key to convincing state lawmakers of the need for new laws and the national support behind the movement. The WBI national survey results are the most-cited findings by media regarding workplace bullying.

Finally, prevalence statistics convince non-believers who want to deny that abusive conduct destroys the careers, health and families of its victims.  It happens and it hurts! Work shouldn't hurt! Workplace abuse is the only form of abuse not yet taboo in America.

In the Trump era, we need to assess the effect his disturbing administration has on our already aggressive, pro-bullying society. Specifically, when civility rules are abandoned at the highest political level,  do American employers react to the loosening with even more bullying of workers without fear of consequences?

Some pollsters charge $100,000 for this project. WBI enjoys a special relationship with a polling firm that samples adult Americans for us for a fraction of that fee.

Also, MAPE, a union of state workers, has contributed as a major sponsor of the 2017 survey. Thanks to them, we have to raise only $4,000 to launch the new survey! Results will be posted in the spring.

We, Drs. Ruth and Gary Namie, are WBI founders. June 2017 marks WBI's 20th anniversary. We've written the books -- for bullied individuals and for employers. The WBI website is chock full of advice and help to help targets and their families counter the tsunami that bullying brings to their lives.

Besides the periodic national surveys, WBI lobbies for enactment of the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill . The only legislation of its kind aimed at adult victims.

The third week of October is WBI's Freedom Week .

So, can you please help us?  Thank you in advance.

Almost forgot, we have over 200 videos on the WBI YouTube Channel. Have a look.

I have been a steward in a state government setting during a 15+ year "career". Just before Freedom Week, I learned of your organization. The work I have read, the DVDs/YouTubes I have viewed are POWERFUL! It is clear that to persuade legislative change, one must have documented data. I appreciate the data I have had and was wanting more current information to carry to "our marble hall". A shout out to the legislators who continue to present bills for a Healthy Work Place!
