Tanya Rajwanshi | Dr. Siddharth Soni
Abstract: Anxiety and workplace bullying can fundamentally affect a singular's prosperity and generally speaking emotional well - being. We should investigate the connection between the two: Anxiety and Pre - Existing Condition: It's vital to take note of that anxiety can preexist before an individual enters the labor force. People with tension issues might be more powerless to the pessimistic impacts of working environment harassing because of their elevated aversion to stressors. Anxiety Because of Work environment Harassing is a working environment tormenting alludes to constant, rehashed abuse or provocation of a representative by at least one people. The experience of being harassed can prompt the turn of events or worsening of anxiety side effects. The apprehension, embarrassment, and consistent pressure brought about by harassing can add to the beginning of anxiety, for example, summed up tension confusion (Stray) or post - traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This study was done on a sample of 80 individuals (N=80), 40 young adults and 40 middle aged adults. The study was conducted through a 21 - item questionnaire for workplace bullying and 14 item questionnaires. The questionnaire was sent to subjects online through google forms and offline too. Instructions were clearly mentioned at the start of every section. The response sheet was then scored and the results were tabulated. This paper aimed to do a comparative study on young adults v/s middle aged adults with respect to the effect of workplace bullying on anxiety. Here workplace bullying is our dependent variable whereas anxiety is our independent variable. Previous research under these two variables show that workplace bullying influence our anxiety. Low workplace bullying handling capacity tends to lower our anxiety, whereas higher workplace bullying increases our anxiety. However workplace bullying, being a relatively new area for research has not been explored a lot, especially with respect to Indians. Results suggested that there was significant relationship between anxiety of both young adult and middle - aged adults. Which means that the way one handles his/her emotions do come in the way of their willingness or motivation to achieve their goals. however, when both the variables (i. e workplace bullying and anxiety) were compared individually in both the age groups, (i. e, young adults and middle - aged adults), it was seen that there is no significant difference between the workplace bullying and anxiety between both the age groups.
