The impact of a threat or an incident of workplace violence can radiate throughout an organization. It just makes sense that the prevention of workplace violence requires a comprehensive, holistic, enterprise-wide program. The best approach must be a balance of policy and procedure, security and safety measures, human resource concerns, leadership support, and business impact considerations.
Consulting and training solutions from WGI meet the requirements established by the American National Standard for Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention (ASIS/SHRM WPV1.1-2011). Programs are practical and engaging, designed to raise awareness without creating fear, and focus on developing new behaviors. From an enterprise-wide program to individual components, WGI is ready to help with your workplace violence prevention efforts.
We provide specialized training programs for administrators, staff, school counselors, teachers and security personnel to educate about warning signs for potential violence and to provide effective ways to intervene and assist when concerns about threats or problematic behaviors arise.
The WGI team of Threat Assessment (TA) specialists assess and intervene in threats of violence, aggressive, dangerous, or other inappropriate behaviors. Our TA specialists provide safe and practical approaches to problem situations, collaborating with your leadership, HR, legal and other designated personnel.
If you are facing an emergency, call your local 9-1-1.
Because the Human Resource function has a unique depth and breadth of reach in most organizations, it’s not a surprise that HR plays a critical role in the prevention of workplace violence. HR solutions from WGI range from high-level strategic planning to a wide array of functional support activities.
We can help you effectively navigate the challenges of what can seem to be competing interests between HR's focus on people and culture, and other organizational factors.
