Summary/Abstract: It is well known that the managers, leaders, company owners and even more, the researchers have been in a continuous competition in finding and providing the best workplace. Being considered both physical and psychological aspects, all the concerns have been directed to finding a better space, more light, proper smell and sound, sitting or standing desk positions, dressing etiquette and so on, or motivating factors such as trainings, flexible schedules, pay and benefits programs, vacations and many others. All of them thought to raise the balance, the productivity and why not, the happiness of working people in all positions. Furthermore, the leadership aspects were taken very seriously and true leaders became the voices of their teams, but still, a job is a job, and people, due to their nature, get competitive. Competition has more advantages than disadvantages, but we will have to take into consideration that fact that a race would reveal both the best and the worst in people. This is why, more and more, worldwide, we are facing a lot of issues that are apart from the managers’ development plans. We are taking into consideration rough actions like lack of freedom of expression – meaning criticism in front of others, interruptions, verbal threats – or even more, isolation in its many aspects. In addition, the practice of discrediting co-workers is well-known from all times. Generally speaking, we are facing mobbing, considered to be a communicative situation that produces serious damages, both physical and psychological, with long periods of recovery of working people. The aim of the paper is to underline once again that all the management programs may fail unless real-time measures are taken in order to stop the many and various actions of harassment at the workplace and also to provide some guidelines in avoiding the process of terror among co-workers.
