FEI Presenting at Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium

2 Mar. 2018 Posted by aadams

Addressing ideological beliefs and mental health to keep workplaces safe.

FEI is presenting sessions at the upcoming Business & Legal Resources (BLR) Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium running March 6-7, 2018 in Savannah, Georgia.

FEI Business Solutions Engineer Raquelle Solon will participate in the panel discussion “Political Protests, Evangelization, and Intolerance: When Conflicting Ideological Beliefs Can
Lead to Workplace Violence”
on March 6 at 11:40 a.m. EST. Solon will be joined by Dethra Giles, ExecuPrep; Jim Sawyer, CHS-IV, CPP, Seattle Children’s Hospital; and Donna Clark-Love, Consultant.

Panelists will discuss how employers can respect the varying political, religious and socioeconomic views of employees while limiting speech and other conduct that could escalate to violence in the workplace. The session will examine incidents where extreme views played a role in an attacker’s violent acts. Experts will discuss how to identify signs of violent behavior and legal implications for monitoring and responding to threats.

Solon will also be presenting the workshop “Creating a Culture of Respect, Inclusiveness, and Support for Employees’ Mental Health: Employee Assistance Programs, Workforce Training, and More” on March 7 at 8:00 a.m. EST.

The workshop will discuss the positive impact employee assistance programs (EAP) can have on managing employee stress, anxiety and other mental health issues that, if left unaddressed, could lead to potential violence in the workplace. Participants will learn how to effectively promote and encourage the use of EAP, recognize signs of employee emotional or mental health issues and design workplace culture to promote healthful work-life balances for employees.
