SBL Professorial Research Talk

Tuesday, 04 July 2017


The SBL Professorial Research Talk is an event arranged by School of Business and Law Research Office for our Professors to share their research insights with staff and research students at the School and the University.

It also provides an ideal platform to promote our School’s research capacity, and to introduce our Professors to their fellow academics and the wider community.

In each one-hour talk, there will be a presentation by one of our Professors, followed by interactive discussion, and informal chat during refreshments.

I warmly invite you to join us for an exciting and sociable gathering.

Upcoming event

Many, and varied labels have been used to describe negative and inappropriate workplace behaviours, with power, persistence and harm to the victim being central to most. In recent years increasing attention has been paid to negative workplace behaviours, including bullying, however, as the information base grows, new gaps in knowledge emerge. Broad perspectives are needed to capture some of the diversity associated with the study of inappropriate and negative workplace behaviours, especially in a globalised world and in multi-cultural societies. These behaviours appear on a continuum ranging from being ‘unkind’ and incivility, through to victimisation, abuse, and “psychological warfare”; national culture is often a ‘lens’ through which these behaviours are perceived and experienced. This presentation provides an overview of the nature, cause, and consequences of workplace bullying. The passion for this area of research is driven by the desire to strive towards a better society by ensuring harmonious workplace relations, and ultimately maintaining the dignity and respect of employees who spend a considerable amount of their life at work.
