With Workplace Mobbing, Why Does Management Get Rid Of The Victims Instead Of Those Toxic Psychopaths?

by Strongwoman

Hello everyone, I was also a mobbing victim, mainly because I am an individualist and I do not need to be accepted by a group at all cost. I want to do my job without disturbing anybody, help others if they need it and that's it. But this is too much for some people.

I do not like to gossip along with the group just because they expect me to join them, nor do I want to hate or isolate innocent people just because the group in power expects me to do so.

That way I became the scapegoat. But I am not going to describe my story here, all I want to know is why management does so little about those toxic people?

I reported those issues, I showed them evidence—they wouldn't listen to me. They swept it under the carpet and later on they (management, HR) started to turn roles and blame me for everything!

The funny thing is that the bullying group badmouthed not only me but other coworkers and even the management itself! So the manager and team leader were their victims in a way. I told that to the manager herself that she was being criticised and gossiped about, but she didn't even want to listen.

Only after I left the company my team leader said that "no mtter what you would do, they would always blame you for everything"; similarly the HR told me "they made a scapegoat of you".

They admitted it only after I quit the job but before that they bleached the mobbers and said I need to change my behaviour; there is something wrong with me that so many people are against me. Can you imagine that? Why all those lies? Hypocrisy.

Shortly after my leaving, my colleagues told me that the mobbers found a new victim—the new girl, and that the atmosphere is as bad as it was when I was there, nothing changed.

My question is—why does management get rid of the victims instead of those toxic psychopaths? This way they will never fix the problem and new people will be victimized. It's as if the management feared their own subordinates. That's ridiculous!

Because they are guilty themselves
by: Anonymous

Management will not do anything about bullies who gossip maliciously, put others down to make themselves look better, blame their designated scapegoat(s), and constantly complain about situations which are not to their liking, because most managers are guilty of the same behavior; that's how they got to be managers, by pushing their contemporaries aside and stepping on their subordinates on their way up the ladder. I used to think managers were leaders, role models, someone you could look up to... but I found out they are just people with their own scruples, and actually a good number of them are narcissists, or even sociopaths or psychopaths. I got fired after 29 years at the same company, for not trying to fit in with the group of co-workers who gossiped, goofed off, played on their phones, laughed at others' pain, and just generally did not give a damn about the work at hand. Yeah, go figure. I'm sure they found another person to pick on after I was gone, but thank God it is not me anymore. I doubt it will ever stop, no matter what rules or laws are put into place, as I believe it is human nature for people to follow the leaders who are the best convincing, lying, two-faced, stab-you-in-the-back actors. Just my experience, sorry to say.

Unfortunately, HR is there purely to enable Management to do whatever they like without legal repercussions. They will 99% of the time fire the bullying victim because they know that most people don't have the finances to sue them and because it's easier to get rid of the 'squeaky wheel'.
