A STUDY TO FIND THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN WORKPLACE BULLYING AND ITS EFFECTING ON JOB PERFORMANCE AMONG UNIVERSITY TEACHERS OF PUNJAB
AbstractThe study aimed to investigate the association between workplace bullying and job performance among university teachers in Punjab. The research design used was descriptive, and convenient sampling was employed to collect data from 110 teachers from different faculties of different universities all over Punjab. Two survey tools were used: the Workplace Bullying Scale (WBS) and a self-developed questionnaire consisting of 11 statements regarding job performance of teachers. The analysis revealed that workplace bullying negatively affects job performance, and the female teachers and teachers with less experience experienced more bullying. The findings suggest that workplace bullying causes damage to teachers' psychological health, lowers their self-esteem and confidence, causes depression, and sometimes leads to quitting their job. A significant positive association was found between workplace bullying and job performance. Finally, the study recommended implementing policies and procedures to eliminate workplace bullying in the academic institutions.
