How To Prevent Workplace Violence

The U.S. Department of Justice’s recent statistics report that per year, roughly $55 million in wages are lost due to the effects of workplace violence. This number does not even account for the additional costs of lost productivity and legal fees, so in truth, the total might be much, much higher. A company must prioritize staying profitable not only for the sake of the profits themselves, but for the sake of the employees and clients who rely on the company’s success. So is there a way to prevent workplace violence and, consequently, eliminate the financial risks associated with it? The employment experts at AIR Pre-Hire are here to tell you that yes, there is.

As an employer, you know that you are not only legally bound to protect you employees, but that you also have a moral sense of duty when it comes to keeping them safe and secure. Workplace violence puts that entire mission in jeopardy, but you can stop workplace violence before it even starts by performing pre-employment screening. Screening you employees and performing background checks will give you insight into their criminal history as well as their employment history; even those without a criminal record could potentially have a bad reputation for violence within their past workplaces. If you know before you make your final hiring decision that a job candidate could pose a threat to your other employees, then you can ensure that the job goes to someone who is qualified for the position and who will not endanger your employees or your company in any way.
