The Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPM) has commenced the process of establishing CIPM tribunal to address bullying in workplace.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria (CIPM) has commenced the process of establishing CIPM tribunal to address bullying in workplace.

 
It said the tribunal would also address how to deal with ‘toxic bosses,’ in organisations. President and chairman of the council, Olusegun Mojeed, disclosed this during the institute’s 53rd yearly general meeting, held virtually.
   
He said the institute needed to throw its heart into the matter by being hyper-responsive to people’s issues, without fear or favour and with no consideration for the size or balance sheet of culpable organisations.  People cannot be kept quiet forever according to him,
 
“They are no longer willing to suffer in silence. I still believe that if we take care of our people, they will take care of our customers and the business.
 
“We need to wake up and shape up. What a time to be having this discourse, not with the raging debate presently going on on Twitter concerning toxic businesses, bad bosses, entitled employees and bullying in general. 
 
“There is, no doubt, this activism may result in loss of revenue for the institute. But that would be for a moment. I am positive that the goodwill and emotional currency would go a long way in showcasing our stance that we abhor oppression and unfair labour practices,” he said. He said the institute recorded a surplus of N132 million in its revenue.
 
According to him, that is an increase of three per cent compared to the N121m it made in 2020.  The CIPM boss, however, said the institute was able to record an increase in surplus. 
 
“This we did despite a 15.63 per cent inflation rate in the country as of December 2021.
 
“In 2021, we made a total surplus of N132,000,000 – a three per cent increase compared to N121,000,000 in 2020. However, some revenue heads in the financial statement show a reduction in 2021 when compared to 2020,” he said.
