Workplace bullying AND job performance.


Introduction: Workplace bullying is a condition, when it becomes difficult for an employee to defend himself/herself against the harassment which he/she is facing persistently over a prolonged period of time due to imbalance of power. Previous researches showed that workplace bullying increases the chances of decreased work performance, which may then affect the other outcomes of employees. Objectives: This systematic review is aimed to find out the affects of workplace bullying on the job performance of employees. Methods: A systematic approach was used using PRISMA guidelines. Google Scholar PubMed and PakMediNet databases were searched to select 10 articles using Specific Keywords. Results: From the included articles it was found that workplace bullying has a significant impact on job performance either directly or indirectly on the employees’ job performance. Mostly it has an inverse relationship with employees’ performance. Conclusion: More future research is mandatory in different organizations with different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, so that performance of employees should be maximized while keeping their health at top level.
