Take Action

Now that you have reviewed the national business case statistics in the Get the Facts section for addressing partner violence in the workplace and perhaps have used the Cost Calculator for Employers to estimate your organization's financial risk due to partner violence, we hope you are ready to TAKE ACTION in your organization.

Getting Started

The first step is to join. All STANDING FIRM Members receive a free phone consultation designed to help plan a meaningful approach to addressing the impact of partner violence in your organization. Based on the discussion you will receive an Employer Action Plan documenting a roadmap of recommended next steps to help you plan your organization's strategy in the most effective way possible.

The Strategy: Build In, Not Bolt On

Most new initiatives are bound to fail if employees, managers or leadership think of the initiative as "just one more new thing I have to do," says Candi Castleberry-Singleton, Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer, Center for Inclusion in Health Care at UPMC, so build in STANDING FIRM action steps wherever they fit best in your organization, e.g. safety, wellness, human resources policies and procedures.
