A third of public service witness bullying

A State government survey of thousands of Victorian public servants found that 36 per cent had witnessed workplace bullying in the past year.

A further 20 per cent said they had directly experienced bullying, while 3 per cent had also submitted a formal complaint.

The State of the Public Sector report was tabled in the Victorian Parliament in May by the State Services Authority, and sent to MPs last month.

The report included the results of the People Matter survey, in which 62,600 public sector employees were asked to take part. About 18,500 responded to the survey, which the report says makes the results ”highly reliable due to the large sample size”.
