Workplace Violence – Top 6 actions to take – #3 Healthy Workplace

Through my experience leading teams for decades and according to the American Psychological Association (APA), there are 5 key factors in ensuring a healthy workplace for employees. These factors help mitigate the risk of workplace violence. First, empower employees to control their workplace environment and careers with open dialogue and take their suggestions for improving the workplace. Second, encourage a healthy work-to-life balance with flex hours, vacations, and  leeway if they need to care for loved ones. Third, facilitate career development and goal setting with access to continued education and tuition reimbursement.  Fourth, encourage a healthy and safe workplace by encouraging employees to maintain a good fitness level possibly through workplace team sports and  help them work through stress if possible and refer them to professional medical or counseling if their personal situations warrant.  Finally, employees should be recognized for outstanding performance and celebrations of success should be encouraged.   … Sue Abu-Hakima, CEO Amika Mobile
