Workplace violence or crimes can happen to anyone! Although business crimes commonly occur from an unknown source, other crimes may occur within the workplace and between coworkers. Some tips to avoid workplace feuds are below.

Team Bonding

Having a close connected team will grow your business. Better connect your employees by coordi­nating a simple work dinner outing or lunch catered to the office. Regular team bonding activ­ities can develop skills and knowledge of your staff by improving produc­tivity, increasing commu­ni­cation, and encour­aging collab­o­ration. If your employees are increasing cooper­ation and collab­o­ration, they will be less likely to experience violence between each other. 

Clear Expec­ta­tions

Provide clear expec­ta­tions in your workplace including a disci­pline policy which describes the conse­quences of making threats or violent acts, outlines the proce­dures to report a complaint, and describes clear examples of unacceptable behavior. Make a commitment to regularly monitor and review the disci­pline policy to keep all employees accountable. 

Access Control

Having the ability to control who comes and goes from your workplace is becoming more popular and essential for local businesses. With a Bates Security Access Control System, you will have the ability to lock & unlock doors, disable access and create activity reports so you can keep track of the entrances and exits of your building using card keys, key fobs, electronic locks and even key-less entries.
