Purpose - to identify the prevailing types of mobbing, the effects on employees, the awareness of managers of the problem and possible solutions.

Design/methodology/approach - quantitative survey. The survey data were analysed using SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Science) version 24.0.

Findings - Mobbing negatively affects employees' psychological and physical health, motivation, performance, trust in the organisation, and motivates them to change jobs. The study found that mobbing is widespread in organisations and that mobbing problems go unaddressed. Mobbing was found to affect employees who work on the premises of the organisation rather than remotely. The results also show that mobbing problems affect men more than women.

Research limitations/implications - 387 employees took part in the study, 70.5% women and 29.5% men. The disproportion between men and women in the sample may cause some limitations of the study.

Practical implications -It is hoped that this article will help to raise public awareness and prevent possible mobbing incidents, as the best way to control mobbing in organisations is to create an environment that is not conducive to the spread of mobbing.

Originality/Value - A study shows that teleworkers are less likely to experience mobbing in their organisations.

Keywords: organisation, mobbing, mobbing consequences.

Research type: original research.

JEL classification: I1.
