The Freedom Programme Domestic Abuse training is essential for effective workplace policies and workforce development.
Have you noticed regular sickness patterns in your workforce? Are you looking for something to increase productivity within your workforce? Do you have a domestic abuse specific workforce policy, in terms of what the pathways of support are for members of staff in your team or organisation? Are you a conscientious employer/manager who wants to support your staff in as many ways as possible?
Did you know 1 in 4 women will have experienced domestic abuse in their lifetimes and 1 in 6 men?
Whatever the diversity and volume of your workforce there is a significant likelihood that you have victims of domestic abuse working for you. The Freedom Programme training enables learning and safe identification of an individuals status.
As an employer, the Freedom Programme gives you the insight and capacity to understand and appropriately support your staff. Many employers will give staff members time off for them to attend the Freedom Programme But that would only be in cases where things have come to light and the employee has been unable to not discuss with their employer, what is going on for them. Imagine how productivity could be increased and employee’s feel supported if the whole workforce got this education. Reaching out and creating light bulbs that people didn’t even know they had – but that would ultimately effect their disposition and create better working practices.
Clare Walker and the Freedom Programme can assist you with policy development and pathways to support internally and externally of the organisation or agency. Also considering that the annual cost of Domestic Abuse on workforce productivity is £5.5billion per year, not only is it a sensible financial decision for managers it should be a priority for responsible organisations in preventing, protecting and supporting all members of their workforce who may be affected by domestic abuse.
