Thanks for coming to Violence in the Workplace – presented by Sterling Insurance Group!

Sterling Insurance hosted Workplace Violence on Friday, August 9th, 2019. Violence in the workplace can occur in many different ways and can be difficult to handle. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, it is defined as any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behaviors. In fact, about two million people report that they’ve experienced workplace violence each year. However, even though that may seem like a lot, nearly 25% still goes unreported. The event was led by Phil Abdoo to lead us through a discussion on workplace violence.
