Description:

Statistically speaking, every large company has domestic violence in their midst, whether they realize it or not. More than half of women (and many men) have experienced physical, sexual, or severe emotional abuse during their lifetime, and most of these victims are employed, as are their abusers. When these employees show up to their jobs, the domestic violence frequently follows, causing a multitude of problems in the workplace. These issues range from repetitive phone calls on the mild end, to mass shootings on the extreme end of the spectrum.

Violent incidents are a primary concern, but the impact of domestic violence in the workplace reaches far beyond human safety alone. Abused employees have higher absenteeism and lower productivity rates than non-abused employees. They also have over 40% higher health care costs and a greater chance of leaving the company or being fired because of what they are experiencing at home and at work. Their abusers create a significant liability risk for employers facing everything from OSHA violations to multi- million-dollar post-incident lawsuits. If employee victims aren’t coming forward and management isn’t responding correctly, then the company is “flying blind” and unable to see the dangers before them.

As an employer, you have the power to address and defeat the insidious enemy of domestic violence, but you can’t do it without understanding the nature of their opponent and knowing exactly what tools to use in the battle against it.

Join us when Lynn Fairweather, President at Presage Consulting and Training, LLC, will explain the types of domestic abuse and the common myths around them, and how domestic abuse can have a trickle effect and impact everyone at the workplace.

You’ll learn:

  • The prevalence, types, and forms of intimate partner abuse
  • Common myths about domestic violence and the complex dynamics of an abusive relationship
  • How domestic violence can impact the workplace and everyone in it
  • How to recognize, respond to, and refer domestic violence victims
  • Tools to help to keep victims and the workplace safe

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
