This research addresses the measurement of bullying in Italy. Above 1700 Italian employees compiled the Negative Acts Questionnaire (NAQ-R) Italian version across more than 20 organizations. The database of the research came indeed from a work of organizational diagnosis. Findings highlighted that bullying is clearly linked to the organizational context, though the nature of the experience varies among companies. Results showed that also the occurrence of each negative act (included in the NAQ-R Italy) varies significantly among the considered organizations. A focus on negative acts is finally suggested at a cross-cultural level, particularly in terms of risk assessemt of negative acts most prevalent in organisational contexts in particular and in nations in general. Keywords: workplace bullying, Negative Acts Questionnaire Revised, negative behaviours, job design, cross-cultural psychology.
