- Adapting Workplace Violence Strategies to Accommodate a Modern Flexible Workforce
As businesses embrace the modern flexible workforce, security professionals must reimagine how the workplace violence strategy must adapt to secure assets, data and employees. While many employees are considered “hybrid,” securing the physical property is a challenge when it comes to access control, protective strategies, training and insider risk mitigation. While most organizations may have had a robust security program in place, many facets of pre-pandemic policies and plans will not transfer over to the current work environment. The presenters will share considerations to think about for identifying and preparing for threats of violence and establishing a proactive approach for securing the new workforce paradigm.
- The Trials and Trepidations in the Leadership of a Workplace Violence Prevention Program
More than ever, workplace violence prevention (WVP) is incredibly important to the corporate security program. In this session, three physical security professionals working in very different fields will discuss dealing with their leadership role as WVP program administrators. They will present the challenges experienced during program development, program implementation, changing culture, the leadership challenges experienced during “the heat of the moment” incident response/investigation and keeping the program focused on violence reduction. They will also address complacency, dealing with roadblocks, dealing with the challenges of working from home, all to help reduce the risk of violence in the workplace.
