Domestic Violence and the impact on your business
There are 3 reasons to implement domestic violence policies and training in your workplace:
- It’s the right thing to do.
- Your staff will feel safer and supported resulting in higher staff engagement.
- It will reduce the impact domestic violence has on absenteeism, productivity and turnover.
Let’s consider the numbers in Australia (courtesy of AHRC)…
The Victorian Government put the cost of domestic violence to business at more than $500 million per year and rising.
That’s a problem worth addressing. And if you’re a decision-maker in your organisation, there are relatively easy and inexpensive ways to reduce the impact on your business and support your staff.
