Call For Papers - CFP

This presentation introduces participants to the topic of domestic violence and how it impacts the workplace, before explaining in depth the concept of the “3 R’s”: Recognize, Respond, and Refer. Attendees will learn how “spillover” affects the victim’s performance and safety as well as that of their co-workers. They will examine how a business overall is damaged by domestic violence, even if employers never know it’s happening.

The training focus will be divided into three central parts:

Signs of domestic violence victims and abusers

Best practices for effective, sensitive intervention (including sample scripts) and

Guidelines for appropriate referrals and follow-up, both internal and external.

Included will be national organization contacts for helping victims outside of work, as well as resources for employers wishing to address the issue further.

Why Should You Attend

Corporate threat managers, security, and human resources personnel are all responsible for helping to maintain safety in the workplace. But, if you don’t know what threats are lurking below the surface, or don’t understand the nature of the ones you can see; your company may suffer immeasurable human and financial losses. Domestic violence is an insidious enemy to the American workplace: Over 60% of women and many men have been physically, sexually, or severely emotionally abused by an intimate partner, and three quarters of those victims are employed. The violence and harassment that often follows them to work can pose significant danger to staff and customers, while invisibly stealing billions of dollars per year in absenteeism, lost productivity, higher health care costs, increased liability, and reduced employee retention. When a private employer neglects to educate it’s workforce, fails to establish a culture of trust and disclosure among employees, and remains ignorant to the true reality that victims face, then they are “flying blind” with no way to see the potential risks ahead of them. If an employee involved case “collapses” and tragedy strikes, companies (as well as the communities in and around them) may take years to financially and emotionally recover from the damage. Domestic violence in the workplace can be a complex, high stakes problem, but it isn’t one without solutions. Don’t miss your team’s opportunity to learn how to face employee involved cases with confidence and security.
