Workplace violence can occur in any organization and any industry, and we understand the need for security directors, human resource professionals, business owners, facility managers, law enforcement professionals and community leaders to remain in front of this issue and focus on awareness and prevention.
As a leader in the security services industry, AlliedBarton strives to be a resource for you and provide the information and tools you need.
Potential: Workplace Violence and Your Organizational Success
Potential: Workplace Violence and Your Organizational Success is a new book by Bill Whitmore, AlliedBarton Chairman, President & CEO. Potential shows how a range of stakeholders – from CEOs and other senior leaders to building management, human resources, contract security and law enforcement – can work together to lower an organization’s workplace violence risk and enhance its overall morale and performance.

Violence in the American Workplace Survey Reveals that Events Leading to Violent Encounters are Epidemic in the American Workplace
The “Violence in the American Workplace” survey conducted by AlliedBarton Security Services reveals that over half of Americans employed outside their homes (52-percent) have witnessed, heard about or have experienced a violent event or an event that can lead to violence at their workplace. One in three (34-percent) of those Americans employed outside the home are very or somewhat concerned with their personal safety.
The objective for the survey was to determine if American workers have personally experienced violence in the workplace, witnessed violence while working, been threatened with violence, have concerns about workplace violence, have taken actions to ensure their own safety, and their attitudes toward their current employer. Conducted by David Michaelson and Company, LLC, this was a comprehensive nationwide scientific phone survey of 1,030 adults working outside the home. View the survey results here.
