"Workplace violence continues to be a growing concern for employers and employees throughout the United States," said Brent O'Bryan, SPHR, Vice President of Learning & Development, AlliedBarton, who will be speaking about resilience after a workplace violence event. "It should be every employer's goal to not only reduce the risks associated with workplace violence through preventative measures, but to also plan recovery strategies in case the unfortunate occurs within their organization."
"Preparedness and awareness are the keys to helping protect our employees, our customers, and ourselves," said Lt. Mike Price, Commander - Operational Preparedness Division, Howard Country Department of Police. Lt. Price will be presenting on active shooter situations and what you can do.
"Incidents of workplace violence seem to be more and more prevalent," said discussion panelist Vincent O'Neill, Chief of Headquarters Security for the International Monetary Fund. "The impact is far reaching. It can span from production in the business community to the personal, physical and mental health of an organization's employees. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution to prevent these occurrences. All we can do is be well-educated and have a workplace violence plan in place."
Seminar attendees will have a chance to win a copy of "Potential: Workplace Violence Prevention and Your Organizational Success" by Bill Whitmore, President and CEO, AlliedBarton.
Potential, www.potentialthebook.com, shows how a range of stakeholders -- from CEOs and other senior leaders to building management, human resources, contract security and law enforcement -- can work together to lower an organization's workplace violence risk and enhance its overall morale and performance.
