Why conduct a self defence workshop at your business?

Make sure you take measures to ensure that your most valuable assets – your employees - are healthy, happy and safe both on and off the Job. It could be one of the best decisions you make this year.
Most companies know that they can't afford to have any of their employees become the victim of violence; whether it happens to be on or off the job is irrelevant. Every person is a valuable and significant  member of your company and plays an important role in the health of the organisation.
Violence, whether it happens within the workplace or outside of it, can cause considerable harm to employee morale, increase work-related stress, and cost enormous money in the form of compensation and employee absences. Astute companies know that taking steps to keep their employees safe and healthy by implementing wellness programs, and on-the-job safety training is not only the right thing to do for their employees, but it's in the best interest of the company's own fiscal health, longevity, and success. Companies who take a proactive approach to managing violence in the workplace are addressing the problem directly and avoiding negligence related legal action in the future.  
 Along with knowing that you are doing the right thing by taking care of your employees needs, your company is also more likely to realize a real and direct financial benefit from bringing in a self defense consultant to conduct a training workshop.
By conducting an instinctive defence Workshop you are:

• providing staff with a life-long and life-saving skill - it is at least as important as first aid training.
• Helping to mitigate the incidence of workplace violence and bullying.
• Employees who are capable of protecting themselves are more confident and empowered. Self Defence training has been shown to improve employee discipline and morale, reduce stress and improve critical and creative thinking.
• People who feel safe are less prone to the debilitating effects of  work place stress.
• Self Defence training is excellent for building workplace unity and enhancing teamwork. It clearly demonstrates that the company cares for it's employees which ultimately leads to better productivity.
• Overcome complacency and apathy.
• It is a fun workplace activity for your staff and employees, a practical investment for your company, and an innovative idea for staff training and business functions.

The growing incidence of workplace violence globally is alarming. The subsequent costs associated with managing the aftermath of workplace violence can be exorbitant and is largely preventable. Proper foresight with minimal investment can help prevent potentially significant financial and personnel losses in the future.
We offer our acclaimed Instinctive Defence Workshop for all types of organisations. It is a great way to mix up monthly meetings, professional development sessions and employee gatherings.
If you would like to incorporate practical and effective self defence training as part of your corporate wellness program please call us today to have a friendly no-obligation discussion about your specific needs and how we can assist you.
