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.
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.
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.
Having the ability to control who comes and goes from your workplace is becoming more popular and essential for local businesses.
