Finland Leads Europe in Workplace Bullying
- YLE News, Finland
According to EU 27 statistics, countries that come after Finland in workplace harassment include the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, and France. The problem is significantly lower in the other Nordic countries. For instance, in Sweden, the figures are just one quarter of that of Finland.
'Sweden has managed to improve the situation significantly, Finland, not at all,' Parvikko laments.
'In Sweden, there has been public debate about bullying for a long time. Still they have lower figures than Finland,' says Anna-Maija Lehto of Statistics Finland."
