Active shooters in the workplace; domestic violence stalkers; disgruntled ex employees intent on destroying what you’ve worked hard to build: These are just some of the workplace violence threats businesses must safeguard against every day.
Business Leaders…you have a choice. You can hope bad things never happen, or you can train your team to handle worst-case scenarios effectively. Frankly, there is no real choice. We live in a world where bad things happen to good people, and preparing your staff is the only real option.
The good news is that training your team to plan for and effectively respond to potential violence leads to benefits including:
The Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence (caepv.org) reports that domestic violence costs the U.S. Economy over eight Billion dollars every year in medical care, mental health services, and lost productivity. A study published out of the Sam Walton College of Business found similar results, and that study went on to report that approximately nineteen percent of the employees currently living in a violent lifestyle were being harassed, stalked and assaulted at work.
This means violence is a workplace issue. It is a profit margin issue. It is a productivity issue. Most of all, it is a subject best handled with preparedness and organizational solidarity. Therein lies opportunity for morale-lifting team building and a chance for visionary employers to share that vision with others.
Conducting training for workplace violence situations, including table-top exercises, live-action role play, and planning for dire challenges sends an extraordinary message. It tells your staff that you and the organization values them, that you want them focused, and that you believe the entire company benefits when they work together as an effective team.
