I would like to share some statistics about bullying which may explain why this is such a hot topic.
Bullying is far too complex of an issue to have one canned response to its resolution or to instructing someone on how to handle a specific situation. So much depends on the dynamics and culture of the specific organization.
* A U.S. national survey revealed 8.8% of workers are currently victims of bullying, 25.7% have previously been victims, 22.4% are currently witnesses to bullying, and 19.6% have previously been witnesses to bullying (Namie, 2010).
* It has been estimated that workplace bullying costs U.S. businesses in excess of $23 billion each year (Tepper et al, 2006).
* When bullying is reported to upper management, 44% did nothing about it (Namie, 2007).
* 71% of study participants that reported being bullied were retaliated against, of that group 24% were terminated (Namie, 2007).
HR also seems to struggle with this issue; participants from a study conducted by the Workplace Bullying Institute revealed:
* 11.5% chose not to report the bullying to HR
* Of those that did, 30.9% indicated HR took no action, 37.3% indicated HR made matters worse and retaliation occurred, and 18.2% indicated job loss occurred..
Remembering all of the veterans that have proudly served our country – yesterday, today and even tomorrow’s veterans! We thank you for our freedom!

According to Metrostudy’s active new home survey data, the five fastest-growing metros have experienced over 10,000 new home starts.
As Metrostudy points out in their blogpost “A Housing Dimension to Forbes’ Recent Projection,” it’s noteworthy that the top three markets experiencing new home growth are included in a recent Forbes article listing top markets for expected job growth annually. Here are the markets that overlap:
3. Houston, Texas projected annual job growth: 4.0 percent
4. Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas projected annual job growth: 3.5 percent
5. Ocala, Fla. projected annual job growth: 3.4 percent(Ocala is part of the overall Central Florida market)
Because employment growth has the most direct impact on new home demand, there’s no shock that Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Central Florida are all seeing new home starts. Number one and two from Forbes’ list (Austin, Texas, and McAllen Texas) did not make Metrostudy’s top five cut for growth, but Austin did come in at number nine, with 9,826 annual starts.
Remaining 15 markets in the top 20 list:
6. Southern Calif.: 11,691 annual starts
7. Northern Calif.: 11,511 annual starts
8. Atlanta, Ga.: 11,027 annual starts
9. Austin, Texas: 9,826 annual starts
10. Suburban Md.: 8,729 annual starts
11. Northern Va.: 8,456 annual starts
12. San Antonio, Texas: 8,445 annual starts
13. Raleigh/Durham, N.C.: 8,279 annual starts
14. Charlotte, N.C.: 7,812 annual starts
15. Salt Lake City, Utah: 7,715 annual starts
16. Las Vegas, Nev.: 7,119 annual starts
17. South Fla.: 6,380 annual starts
18. Tampa, Fla.: 6,159 annual starts
19. Central Calif.: 6,148 annual starts
20. Twin Cities: 5,767 annual starts
So we decided to take Metrostudy’s further analysis even further, by examining market summaries of the top five markets for new home starts, and identifying the biggest home building players in each market who will reap the benefits of new home demands (1Q13, 2Q13, and annually).
1. Houston, Texas
2. Dallas – Fort Worth, Texas
3. Central Florida
4. Phoenix & Tucson, Arizona
5. Denver - Colorado Springs, Colorado
