Maintaining a safe and secure work environment is mandatory for any business to be able to operate efficiently and successfully; unfortunately, U.S. companies face increasingly complicated and unique challenges that threaten the security and well-being of their personnel.
Workplace violence continues to be one of the top security threats facing corporate America – acts of violence in the workplace currently ranks as the third-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the U.S. Reports indicate that roughly 7 out of 10 of these security threats originate internally (i.e. involving employees). Research has also identified several factors that may increase the risk of violence within certain work environments. These factors include (but are not limited to) exchanging money with the general public, providing services and/or care, and working in environments where alcohol is served. In addition to workplace violence, corporate organizations face a wide range of security issues that include corporate espionage, stalking, extortion and theft. Employee theft, for example, results in losses of up to $50 billion per year, and a staggering 33% of U.S. companies file bankruptcy as a result of employee theft. Despite such alarming workplace trends, these corporate security threats can largely be prevented.
