Sky-high unemployment PLUS mounting economic pressures on families have combined to cause the perfect storm. The only common element in workplace violence is managers and executives who were sure "it couldn't happen here." Don't stand idle – be aware of the top 5 reasons that your people are in danger (that you probably aren't thinking about).
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to recognize early signs of violence
- Why you must have a violence in the workplace policy
- Why documentation is your best defense How training reduces vicarious liability
- The 5 reasons that your people are in danger
Violence in the Workplace is a huge liability and a fiscal disaster waiting to happen. Unless you and your company take "reasonable action" to ensure the safety of your employees, you could face lawsuits, a damaged company image or even potential loss of life.
