Workplace violence: what are you doing to protect your staff?

Workplace violence: what are you doing to protect your staff?

If heavy workloads, busy schedules and many tasks to achieve in a short 8 hour day wasn’t enough to cause stress, now we are concerned with staying alive at work!

What do you do if a disgruntle employee starts shooting up the place? Do you run? Hide? Or fight back?

The truth is…unfortunately, you don’t realize what that answer is till you are in that situation.

Staff are stressed with professional and personal issues, overwhelmed with deadlines and the last thing they need to do is fear for their lives.

What are you, the employer, doing to maintain a safe, positive and high performance environment?

My most popular topic is “Who’s Taking Care of You?” It’s a one hour to three hour Staff Development Training that is engaging and interactive for your employees. They receive 6 ways to prevent burn-out, 3 ways to recover from burn-out, communicate effectively and team build with one another.

What does burn-out and staff retention have to do with workplace safety?

I’m so glad you asked. Did you know that over 50% of employees are burnt out while 70% are dreaming of working another job while working at their current job?

Yes, according to the Families and Work Study, this data is accurate. Employees are overwhelmed, stressed and creating violence as a dangerous solution.

Most of the workplace shooters had been experiencing some sort of life changing stressful event at the time of their deadly rampage; a break up, loss of job, move, death of a relative.

It’s time we learn how to manage our stress in a positive, productive way that will heal each other; not harm one another.
