Seminar discussion topics will include:
"According to studies, one-fourth of employees view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives, and additionally, three-fourths of employees believe their work has more on-the-job stress than a generation ago," said speaker Brent O'Bryan, SPHR, VP of Learning & Development, AlliedBarton. "This increased stress level can be correlated to workplace violence events. Awareness, training and education are essential to decreasing violent incidents."
"A segment of this seminar will focus on intimate partner violence and its effects on the workplace," said speaker Attorney Pam Paziotopoulos, Senior Vice President, Forest Advisors. "It is imperative to know the warning signs of intimate partner abuse and other valuable information about what can be done to protect employees from often fatal consequences of stalking in the workplace."
"You always have to prepare for the worst," says speaker Officer Jeffrey Stanczyk, City of Cleveland Police Department. "You'll never be surprised if you practice what you plan. Enforcement of your workplace violence prevention plan is very important, but education is the key to ensuring compliance and increasing the safety of your workplace."
