The objective of this study was to evaluate the mobbing perception levels of health workers, who were mobbed and to determine whether the socio-demographic characteristics of the employees made a significant difference in the perception of mobbing. Within the scope of the study, the mobbing perception levels of 516 healthcare personnel were evaluated by using relational screening model. In order to collect data, socio-demographic data form and Leymann Psychological Terrorist Scale developed by Heinz Leymann were used. As a result of the study, 70.0% of the participants who were exposed to mobbing reported that they were exposed to mobbing behaviors by their managers. The Leymann Psychological Terrorism Scale was found to be 1.49. Mobbing behaviors that affect self-disclosure and communication possibilities is the most common bullying behavior that the participants were exposed (x̄: 1.73). As a result, the data suggested that company policies rather than demographic characteristics of individuals are effective in the exposure to mobbing behaviors. It is thought that the cultural structures of the societies and the individuals’ knowledge about which behaviors can be evaluated as mobbing have an effect on the mobbing perception levels of the individuals. Accepting mobbing behaviors as a normal situation in hierarchical structure or interpersonal relationships is one of the important problems in prevention. For this reason, one of the most important steps in the prevention of mobbing is to ensure that both managers and employees are informed about mobbing.
