Thank you in advance for taking part. We need you to share this important survey with as many other Administrative Professionals as you possibly can.

Why are we doing this?

This is a world first! We do not have any data on this crucial subject from our sector and we need it.

Over recent years, the issue of workplace bullying among administrative professionals has been increasingly raised at conferences & events, via social media and indeed to industry leaders across the world. 

However, we do not have any official statistics and figures from any country to really have a true understanding of what is going on and who is being affected, to take to Executives and HR professionals.

Even if you haven’t directly experienced bullying during your career we still need you to complete this survey so we can see the whole picture.

The survey results will be launched to coincide with Bullying Week on 14th November and we will be doing extensive PR to raise awareness of the findings.

Once we have this crucial data we can plan and provide the appropriate support and resources going forward for those who have or will experience bullying during their administrative career.

We ask you all to please post and share with as many people as possible. You are ALL connected to Administrative Professionals in some shape or form, whether by work or personal life.

All the job titles in the Adminsphere - Receptionists, PAs, EAs, Admins, Office Managers, VAs etc are included.

This survey is completely confidential and will take approximately ten minutes to complete.

For the purposes of this Survey, “workplace bullying” is defined as;

·       Verbal Abuse
·       Offensive conduct/behaviors (including non-verbal) which are threatening, humiliating or intimidating
·       Work interference – sabotage – which prevents work from getting done

Thank you so much for your help by taking part in this important research.
