However, organizations are unable to identify those acts of violence which affect greatly their activities, and consequently their performance. This research aimed to identify the consequences provided by workplace bullying verified by teachers and technical and administrative servants in a Higher Education Institute.

Quantitative data were treated statistically, and qualitative data were treated by content analysis. The health effects on workers were: disturbed/physical problems, headaches, stress, discouragement, isolation, wanting to retire, and others. Identifies the need for the institution to implement programs directed to prevent and combat this violence, as well as provide support for workers who suffer the effects provided by workplace bullying and other forms of violence and situations in the institution
