Our latest podcast features an interview with Kim Wells, Executive Director of the Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence, the leading force in the fight against domestic violence. It is the only national organization of its kind founded by business leaders and focused on the workplace.

More than 70 percent of U.S. businesses have no policy or formal program in place to address workplace violence. However, violence costs businesses $70 billion a year, with $64.4 billion attributed to lost workplace productivity.

Kim suggests formalizing a program to keep the workplace safe, whether the violence is related to domestic or workplace issues. Components of a program include, formalizing a policy, creating a response team, building awareness and educating staff on the realities and affects of workplace violence.

There's more where than came from. Very important topic to me personally as well.

Thank you and enjoy!
