Workplace bullying and sleep

A second paper on workplace bullying from the Helsinki Health Study (above) looked at its impact on sleep. Around 55% of the men and women who had reported sleep problems at baseline (2000–2002) also reported them at follow-up (2007). Sleep problems at follow-up were significantly associated with being bullied at baseline or in the past; however, adjusting for health, work and social factors attenuated the associations.
