WEEKLY MINUTES: WHY ADDRESS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN THE WORKPLACE an interview with Brandie De la Rosa
In this episode of Madison Noteworthy’s Weekly Minutes with Brandon Williams we interview Brandi De la Rosa, owner of e3Inspire, about addressing domestic violence in the workplace.
You might be asking yourself…What does domestic violence have to do with work? We’ll a lot actually! Generally 1 in 4 are victims of domestic violence, as a company not only does this effect your employees and environment, but it effects your bottom line. $8.3 billion, annually, is lost due to things such as productivity, missed work and healthcare.
Domestic violence has a huge impact on companies, that most are unaware of. If your employee is experiencing violence at home, it carries over to the workplace in a variety of ways:
- Aggressors may show up at the work place
- It can lead to stalking or harm to a victim
- It may potentially put co-works at risk as well.
- It causes people to disengaged, scared or depressed
- Decreases productivity
- It may lead to missed work
The bottom line… domestic violence isn’t good for the employee or the company.
So what should you do? Take a look at your policies and procedures, see if there is a domestic violence clause and if not, think about adding one to address it.
