Domestic Violence in the Workplace

Domestic Violence Stats are Staggering

One in 4 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime. 100,000 - 6 million men experience domestic violence annually.

21 percent of full-time employed adults are victims of domestic violence. Seventy-four percent of this group said they’ve been harassed at work.

On average, 3 women and 2 men are killed by intimate partners in the U.S. daily.

Why the workplace?    

Because that is where perpetrators know their victims will be-entering at the start of their day and exiting at the end of the day. Picture a workforce of 50 employees. Approximately 11 of the employees will experience domestic violence and 3 employees in that group will be harassed at work.

With these staggering numbers, it is crucial to develop a workforce that is informed and knowledgeable of domestic violence thus enabling them to be proactive in managing and preventing domestic violence from entering their workplace and possibly save a life.
