According to a survey, among the 1 million people committing suicide each year, nearly 30,000 are Americans. On an average, 1 person commits suicide every 16.2 seconds. Most of them are males - close to 79% -- and over 50% of all suicides are committed with a firearm.
How many co-workers you know have talked about killing themselves? Have you noticed those that have started to withdraw from fellow workers and have increased the use of drugs or alcohol? You, as a manager/supervisor, must know how to approach a person in such a state. You must know how to establish a rapport and engage in active listening.
In such a situation, having the skills to ask a direct question about their intentions and to know what to say or not to say is crucial. A manager's awareness and skills in conducting these activities may be the difference between life and death, literally. The suicide death of a co-worker, on-site or not, has a profound effect on fellow employees. Is your firm ready to supply the support, grieving time, and perhaps counseling that will be required to deal with a major loss? Does your company have a protocol to facilitate such a horrific event? If the answer is NO, you have a big task ahead of you.
This webinar by our expert speaker Jim Zalud will reveal facts that will increase your knowledge and readiness to identify, process, and mitigate a suicide crisis in the workplace. It will provide you with the skills that may: (1) Save you from misreading a critical life-and-death situation, (2) save you from losing your job because of negligence or dereliction of duties, and (3) save your corporation from litigation, in the event your actions, or lack of actions, result in a lawsuit.
You will be provided with a professional understanding of recognizing, resolving, and following up on an employee that is perceived to be suicidal or has committed suicide. The session will show management personnel the steps that have been taken by professionals and executives, to perceive, process, and follow up on the suicide spectrum in the workplace. At the end of this webinar, you'll have confidence, vision and skills to deal with a suicide crisis in the workplace. This must-attend webinar may save the life, or lives, of employees in your workplace!
