Sadly, workplace violence is all too common. Nearly two million U.S. workers report being a victim of workplace violence, and there are even more incidents that go unreported.
Many employers are also now grappling with threats, bullying, cyber-harassment and sabotage.
We help employers recognize the warning signs and develop violence prevention plans through the formation of management teams, training for managers and supervisors, development of state-of-the art policies and procedures and improving security measures.
When an incident does occur, we are there to help you with crisis response 24/7.
We direct and manage post-incident investigations and help you with reporting requirements, policy enforcement, restraining orders and internal or external communication plans.
We also assist with post-incident recovery—helping clients make the transition back to business and develop new programs to prevent similar incidents in the future.
