Goodman researcher to discuss workplace bullying

Dirk De Clercq, Professor of Management and Goodman School of Business Departmental Researcher of the Year Award recipient, will discuss the impact of workplace bullying on voluntary change initiatives during a Goodman Luncheon Speakers Series event on Friday, Oct. 6.

Through his survey of construction sector employees, he will illustrate how personal resources can shield against the harms of workplace bullying.
