Domestic abuse, employee personal issues and stressors, do not stay in the home. They follow the victims to work resulting in employee turnover, absenteeism from injuries and lost productivity due to extreme stress and related issues. This is a social problem, public health problem and also a business problem. Your goal, as a manager, business owner, or human resource professional, is to resolve employee issues that negatively impact your business practice - Human Resource Essential can make that happen for you.
We enable organizations to recognize the human costs, the financial costs and how to create an environment which create a safe place for employees to come forward for help and be referrals to the appropriate intervention.
This process leads management through state and federal compliance as a part of their current role and eliminates common "therapist role" concern.
We also provide employee training and public awareness programs to educate those not in management roles on what domestic abuse is, whom it affects, and the differences between popular myths and realistic facts. Attendees learn how to respond and resources for help - for themselves and for others.
Clients include Retailers, Insurance providers, Financial Institutions and Non-Profit Organizations.
