Workplace Bullying Institute

The Leslie August Corporation is honored to be an Affiliate of the internationally renowned Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI) established in 1997.


Drs Gary and Ruth Namie started the anti-workplace bullying movement in the U.S. and are experts who generously provide hundreds of pages of free online information to bullied targets. They have personally taken calls from over 12,000 bullied targets and are authors of several books and national surveys on workplace bullying. They founded and operate Workplace Bullying UniversityⓇ to research, understand, and teach the public about the prevention and correction of abusive conduct at work.


In Affiliation, WBI and The Leslie August Corporation are taking the “Work Shouldn't Hurt” proclamation to the C-Suite, Risk Managers, and Legal teams.


For years WBI has recognized the health harm caused by bullies in the workplace. Risk Managers, Legal, and HR see the complaints, claims, and lawsuits that result. The Leslie August Corporation, backed with research developed by WBI, has introduced a 4-phase system, Analyze | Strategize | Civilize | Realize, that gets to the root cause abusive conduct at work and many employment practices issues that land on Risk Managers’ desks.
