Title Emotional contract for the primary prevention of bullying
Original title Le contrat émotionnel au service de la prévention primaire du harcèlement psychologique [in French]
Bibliographic information Dec. 2006, Vol.22, No.4, p.10-12. 7 ref.
Abstract This article proposes the "emotional contract" approach between employees and employers as a means of addressing the issue of bullying at the place of work. This is based on the commitment of employers to help employees identify all aspects of their work that contribute towards making the work experience more enjoyable, while employees commit to actively supporting this approach and to working productively.
