Bullying response is what matters
Dear Sir, — Concerning your editorial on bullying, I would like to make a few comments.
While all organisations will do what they can to reduce bullying, what matters is how they respond to allegations.

It is therefore challenging to work out from the outside if there is an issue in a particular company.
What helps is the general culture of the business as this gives a clue as to how they handle complaints generally.
