Bullying and Harassment at Work
What is this survey for?

In New Zealand, we want everyone to be healthy and safe at work, and this includes being free from bullying and harassment.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment is currently looking into how we prevent and respond to bullying and harassment at work in New Zealand. To help us with this, we want to hear from people about:
  • The types of policies and systems you’ve seen used to prevent and respond to bullying or harassment at work
  • How well these policies and systems actually work, and how they can be improved
  • What types of tools and support from the Government may help further
Your feedback in this survey will help us to develop future policies and guidance in this area.

Who do we want to hear from?

We want to hear from anyone who has a view on how to prevent and respond to bullying and harassment at work, whether or not you have experienced bullying yourself.

This includes workers who have experienced bullying at work, people who have supported others in dealing with a bullying or harassment issue, managers or HR representatives who respond on behalf of businesses or organisations, people who have been accused of bullying at work and others with views on how well systems and policies are working.

This survey is anonymous and all personal experiences mentioned will be treated in a confidential and sensitive manner.

How does this survey work?

This survey asks a number of questions about how well you think businesses and government systems are dealing with bullying and harassment at work.

Most of these questions ask you to write in your answer. Please feel free to write as much or as little as you wish. You can also skip any questions that don’t apply to you or that you don’t want to answer.
