News stories surrounding workplace violence focus mostly on the event itself and the immediate response. Little is heard about what happens next. How do these institutes get back to business? Where do they start? How do they get from an act of violence, to recovery and back to business?
Violence of any kind can be disruptive to an organization and the more severe the violence, the greater the disruption. When employees are victims of violence, or when they cause the violence, the disruption to an organization extends far beyond the injuries themselves. A single act of violence, or sometimes even the threat of violence, can cease operations. Companies need to have the necessary protocols in place to address violence, in response protocols with crisis communications and recovery.
The workshop will combine a lecture and a table top exercise to assist attendees with evaluating their own response and recovery plans. Best practices will be discussed with illustrations of what to do and not do will also be featured. All the information, provided will be valuable to assist in contingency planning, no matter what the circumstances.
Presenters of the workshop are Michelle Cross, CDCP, MBCP from Boston, MA and Lorie Alioto, CBCP from Milwaukee, WI. Michelle is a business continuity practice leader for Wells Fargo Insurance with more than 20 years of experience. Lorie is a Senior Business Continuity Consultant providing business continuity and preparedness services to Wells Fargo Insurance customers.
Violence In The Workplace – Effective Exercise Preparation And Execution Workshop will be held on May 4th at Iowa Central Community College on their East Campus from 8 am to 1 pm. The workshop is open to all businesses and professionals and will be especially helpful to the small business owner that may not have the resources or support to design a contingency plan for their organization. A light breakfast and lunch are included with the workshop registration of $35.00. Registrations are now available online and the workshop will have limited seating.
“A client and myself were asked to speak at a recent conference on contingency planning about services the client provides to assist in disaster situations. During the workshop, the client commented on what the chance would be that this would happen to his business. The very next week it did happen, which prompted us to look at bringing this workshop to our area,” states Cheryl O’Hern, Spin Markket Marketing Coordinator. “It shows that it can happen anywhere and no one is exempt from a disaster that could devastate a business.”
Sponsors for the workshop include Wells Fargo Bank – Fort Dodge, Webster County Crime Stoppers, Fort Dodge Police Department, Webster County Sheriff Department, Webster County Emergency Management, Gunderson Funeral & Cremation Services, First State Bank, Infinity Restaurant Group, Iowa Central Community College and Spin Markket.
