Abstract [en]

In the following study, we capture managers' experiences of bullying at the workplace, in both

social services organizations as well as other human-affairs organizations such as healthcare

organizations. The aim of the study is to seek both explanations and understanding of the

extent, nature and impact of bullying in the above professions. Furthermore we compare these

professions with each other to find out how different organizational and social stressors can

affect workers in different ways. In addition, the study focuses on seeking understanding of

the manager's own experiences regarding benefits and limitations when it comes to managing

various forms of bullying. The present study seeks to answer the following questions through

a multistrategic approach consisting of quantitative data in the form of public statistics as well

as qualitative data based on six semistructured interviews with social services organizations

and other human-affairs organizations. The results of this study show that there is a significant

changes over time when it comes to social worker’s and health care worker’s vulnerability to

bullying at the workplace. This study has found that organizational and social factors may

affect employees' perceived mental stress, which in turn can result in escalating conflicts and

an unsustainable working environment. This study therefore emphasizes the importance of

managers' social support and prompt action to pay attention to potential bullying situations,

both concrete and diffuse.
