Workplace Violence

October 30, 2011 780

Martin B. Kormanik, O.D. Systems, published “Workplace Violence: Assessing Organizational Awareness and Planning Interventions” in the February 2011 issue of Advances in Developing Human Resources.

This article was announced in a SAGE press release on October 13th, 2011: “Taking Steps to Prevent ‘Going Postal’: Study helps guide companies HR practices to prevent workplace violence.

The Abstract:

The problem and the solution. Workplace violence is an extreme manifestation of escalated workplace incivility. Strategies for addressing workplace violence are generally proactive, focused on prevention and preparation, or reactive, focused on response to an incident. Before strategies are put in place, however, the complexity of the issue demands an organizational assessment so that chosen strategies have maximum benefit. Awareness development is a construct for analyzing cognitive and psychosocial growth in relation to a transitional issue, such as workplace violence, then planning interventions that support growth in relation to the transitional issue. This study shows that the use of the awareness development construct to examine individual employees’ perceptions regarding the transitional issue of workplace violence may serve as a practical measure for human resource development (HRD) practitioners to assess the organization and plan intervention strategies. Implications for theory and research are discussed.
