This is a survey on Workplace Bullying posted on behalf of Ada Cecilia Magadia Umali, a Masters student in Public Policy at Victoria University of Wellington.

This research project is work towards her a Research Project that is part of the Masters Degree. Ada has been with the New Zealand Nurses Organisation but has moved to a role with the Council for International Development while she is studying. The survey is anonymous but it does capture some demographic data for each participant.
What is the aim of the project?
The objective of this research is to determine the impact of the New Zealand Guidelines on Workplace Bullying, released by WorkSafe in 2014. It covers:
