Initial Evaluation of Workplace Program
Workplaces can take the first step in establishing a comprehensive workplace program by evaluating current efforts to address domestic and sexual violence and stalking.
This Questionnaire asks a number of specific questions that will be helpful to evaluate workplaces both large and small, public and private. The Questionnaire facilitates the identification of specific changes and the creation of plans for implementing them, including:
- Creation of a workplace team
- Creation and implementation of changes to policy/practice/procedure
- Raising awareness among staff about the workplace impact of violence and available response/assistance
- Connecting to local community resources
The Workplace Policy Creation Tool on this website can assist you in establishing guidelines for many of these areas.
Note that the Questionnaire has separate checkboxes for domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking. Although these forms of violence may arise from the same types of circumstances and frequently co-occur, they also differ in important ways and may require a distinct workplace response. To better understand these distinctions, please see the fact sheet on the connection between the workplace and violence on this website.
