Did you know that One-fifth of employed women take time off work because of domestic violence and 2% lose their jobs as a direct result of abuse. The Equality and Human Rights Commission estimates that 56% of those enduring abuse are frequently late for work and 54% miss at least three days a year due to abuse.
The direct cost of domestic abuse to UK business is around £1.9 billion per year, excluding lost productivity and performance.
The human and emotional costs to individuals affected by the issue are huge, and growing numbers of employers are now recognising that domestic abuse is a health and wellbeing issue.
NDAS offer a range of courses and workshops that can help your organisation develop and support your workforce. This approach can mean that you have a healthier, happier workforce which will help productivity and growth.
