16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence
It started yesterday. An international effort to encourage businesses to improve their support systems for vulnerable people and to end domestic violence by protecting their employees.
Domestic Violence can be silent but have so much impact on workers and the workplace. From Health, well-being, absence, and turnover, everyone deserves the freedom and strength to be able to fully perform in their day-to-day lives. You can help others raise themselves back up from the ground. Help empower the voice of victims and change the stigma of domestic violence.
If you have not already, engage your company to commit to the 16 days of action against domestic violence.
What can we do:
If you are a business owner you can begin by signing the pledge
“The Public Health Responsibility Deal is a great way for an organisation to corporately demonstrate its commitment to the global fight against domestic violence.” from the link
Otherwise, there are so many different forms of engagement, from large campaigns to daily tweets, a little can go a long way.
Visit the movement’s website today for the full brief on how you can improve the safety of your workers.
