Traditional bullying and cyberbullying leads to stress in those who are bullied and witness the bullying, absenteeism, and turnover. They lead to a negative image of organizations and make it difficult for them to hire talented workers. Traditional bullying and cyberbullying also lead to litigation and added cost to organizations. In fact, the damage inflicted by cyberbullying can potentially be greater than traditional bullying. The reason is that the bully and bystanders may be anonymous and may not know the level of pain inflicted on the victims and may extend the level of pain inflicted on them (Sarkar 2015).
Thus, whether it is traditional bullying or cyberbullying, it is time to eradicate bullying in order to protect the safety, health, and livelihood of individuals. This book provides research-based solutions on “what to do” to eradicate cyberbullying in the school, home, community, and workplace through the resource of an online national anti-cyberbullying curriculum and web-based reporting, tracking, training, and documentation system (Tell24-7.com).
