||Staff redundancies that often result from mergers and organizational changes in the business world are difficult to implement in public sector companies, where such changes often lead to mobbing. The objective of this survey of the power sector, which in recent years has been affected by considerable organizational changes, was to determine the frequency and risk factors of mobbing. Data were collected by means of questionnaires. Findings show a working environment that tends to isolate and alienate a significant number of workers, one out of three, who explicitly claimed that they felt victims of psychological violence and also felt useless and little appreciated in performing a meaningless job. On the whole, women and older workers tend to be the most exposed to psychological abuse. The older were not old enough to benefit from early retirement schemes and who, like women, were unable to return to the labour market with confidence after years of harassment and humiliation.
