HR Magazine (UK) article on the study done by

According to the study of 1,298 people, women are more likely to feel bullied at work, with 31% of the women asked admitting to having felt victimised in their work place at some point, compared with just 17% of men.

The results show less than one in 10 of those that felt bullied in the workplace actually report it to their HR department. But 24% do tell a colleague about their experiences and almost three quarters (73%) tell their spouse.

People feel more intimidated by men than women according to the study, with 19% of the respondents claiming to feel victimised by a male colleague compared with 14% that feel victimised by a female co-worker.

When asked the multi-answer question 'why do you feel the person at works bullies you?', 41% think the culprit is 'intimidated by their abilities', a further 29% think they are 'jealous of their status within the office' and 48% believe they are picked on because of 'their appearance'.
