This chapter addresses concrete and effective measures that organizations can take to prevent mobbing from happening in the first place. These measures generally involve policy development, stakeholder training and education, and other activities designed to foster a healthier and more respectful climate and culture within organizations. Mobbing prevention strategies described in the chapter include raising awareness about mobbing and fostering a culture of tolerance and respect; assessing the presence of mobbing; development of anti-mobbing policies; training; selection, performance management, and reward systems; consultations with human resources personnel; and school-based mobbing prevention strategies with ongoing assessment of outcome effectiveness. It is argued that attention and effort paid to mobbing preventions strategies by organizations will result in the prevention and/or reduction of mobbing and its associated morbidity for both individuals and organizations.

Keywords:   mobbing prevention, policy development, training, awareness, anti-mobbing policies, selection, performance management, reward systems, school-based mobbing prevention
