Peer learning forum: Domestic Abuse – London
AudienceBITC members with a wellbeing partnership, HR/people/talent management practitioners/managers and Wellbeing practitioners/managers
Thu, 21 May 2020 @ 10:30 – 12:35
Business in the Community events and COVID-19
In light of the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Business in the Community (BITC) is refining its approach to events in the coming weeks. Many events will now be delivered via digital technology. Those events which do not lend themselves to remote delivery will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
BITC’s primary goal is to keep people safe so we have taken this decision based on the latest information available from the UK Government, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Public Health Agencies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as feedback from many of our members.
Please contact Events@bitc.org.uk for more information.
Discuss best practice and how to provide support for employees at this Domestic Abuse peer learning forum.
Awareness of mental health and how it can affect the people in the workplace has improved in the past decade. Yet awareness of domestic abuse and how it impacts individuals at work is still worryingly low.
However, increasing understanding of this crime means responsible employers are now ready to take action and shine a light on the far-reaching consequences of abuse. Domestic abuse may happen at home behind closed doors, but it has an impact on the working lives of those living with an abusive partner or family member.
All employers have a duty of care and a legal responsibility to provide a safe and supportive work environment.
About the event
An overview of Business in the Community’s (BITC) Domestic Abuse Toolkit for employers, co-created with Public Health England – which consolidates the best evidence, employer practice and recommendations – will be provided.
This will lead on to employer action table discussions, with an emphasis on delegate discussion and the sharing of experiences. The event will provide a confidential environment to discuss common issues and good practice, along with solutions.
