New EmployeeScreenIQ White Paper on Workplace Violence

Nick Fishman

Did you know that each year over two million incidents of workplace violence occur in the United States, costing businesses $70 billion annually, yet over 70 percent of U.S. companies have no policy or formal program to address employee violence.?

EmployeeScreenIQ has just released a free white paper, “Violence in the Workplace” that offers a road map to identify the warning signs of a potential threat and to diffuse problems before they escalate.

Despite high-profile shootings such as the Fort Hood massacre and other workplace incidents, most employers fail to address the problem until after an incident has taken place.  Too often, workplace violence is regarded as part of the job and little is done to eliminate it.

The article also includes:

  • Tips for establishing a safe workplace.
  • The roots and causes of workplace violence.
  • How to spot the warning signs.
  • The benefits of background screenings.
  • Understanding employer liability issues.

The complimentary copy of “Violence in the Workplace” can be downloaded by visiting http://www.employeescreen.com/workplace_violence.asp.

On January 20, 2010, EmployeeScreenIQ will sponsor an online panel discussion about workplace violence, featuring leading experts in the HR industry. For details on speakers and to pre-register, visit https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/876116937.
