Insecurity, uncertainty and growing pressure on individuals is bringing tension to the boil in Britain's workplaces, according to new research by Roffey Park.

This "pressure-cooker problem" is increasingly manifesting itself in escalating workloads, increases in workplace conflict, bullying and job insecurity and the growing use of office politics. Nearly one in five managers (18 per cent) say that they have personally experienced harassment or verbal bullying at work. Nearly one in ten (9 per cent) claim to have experienced physical attacks. Twelve per cent claim that sexual harassment occurs in their work environment.
