Workplace Violence: Commercial Security Systems in Jacksonville
May 13, 2019
Workplace violence or crimes can happen in any business so take precaution before it happens to yours. Although business crimes commonly occur from an unknown source, other crimes can occur within the workplace and between coworkers. Follow these simple tips to avoid workplace disruptions in your place of work.
Grow your business by connecting your employees. A simple work dinner or having lunch catered to the office can connect your employees into a team. Regular team bonding activities can develop skills and increase the knowledge of your staff. By improving productivity, increasing communication, and encouraging collaboration, your team will be more involved in the business. Activities can be small to large events that do not have to be a costly factor. If your employees are connecting and increasing the cooperation and collaboration in the office, they will be less likely to experience violence between each other.
Clear expectations should be distributed throughout your workplace including a discipline policy which describes the result of making threats or violent acts, outlines the process 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.
The ability of controlling who comes and goes from your workplace is becoming more popular and essential for local businesses. With a Bates Security access control system, you can have the ability to lock & unlock doors and create activity reports. You will be able to keep track of the entrance and exits of your building using card keys, key fobs, electronic locks and even key-less entries.
