“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

Dignity, open, honest, respectful - University of Newcastle executives and managers?????

"Executives and managers who preach and practice dignity 
will see that quality resonate throughout an organization.  Establishing a culture of open, honest, and mutually respectful communication will have the salutary effect of reducing 
bullying and other forms of employee mistreatment."
(Yamada 2008)

  1. The only thing this University respects is money. Either have it or stay home.

    I'm telling you the truth. If you're not rich or well protected you are f$&ked the minute you walk in the door.
