About this event
In the United States, domestic violence costs companies $5.8 billion annually. Domestic violence will impact your organization, whether you are a business with 25 employees or a large company with 2,000 employees.
In this webinar, I share what domestic violence is, signs an employee is a victim, how it impacts employee safety, retention, productivity, and revenue, and what your company can do about it. The webinar recording will be available for 30 days after the event.
