AlliedBarton Security Services, HR Plus, Forest Advisors and Oro Consulting Present a Free Workplace Violence Prevention Seminar

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/12 -- AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, and HR Plus, a leading provider of comprehensive solutions for employment and background screening, in partnership with Forest Advisors and Oro Consulting, will host a free workplace violence prevention seminar. The seminar will be held on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, 7:30 a.m., to 12:00 p.m., at The Rivers Club, Pittsburgh, PA. Breakfast will be provided.

"Employers, be they large or small, are vulnerable to the spillover of domestic violence and stalking in the workplace," said Pam Paziotopoulos, Senior Vice President, Forest Advisors. "This makes it essential for businesses to prioritize the process of creating internal programs and policies to address domestic violence in the workplace."

"Workplace violence, whether physical, verbal, or psychological, has a profound impact on the effectiveness of an organization," said Dr. Peter Oropeza, Senior Consultant, Oro Consulting. "Company leadership must establish and reinforce a culture of respect and integrity throughout the organization at all levels beyond paying lip service to not tolerating inappropriate workplace behavior. The organization's ability to espouse a healthy workplace culture through specific and deliberate means will not only create a safer environment, but embrace productivity."

"Efforts to prevent workplace violence need to begin with an organization's C-Suite, and become rooted in the corporate culture," said Bill Whitmore, President and CEO, AlliedBarton Security Services. "Among the ways companies can do this is by nurturing employee engagement, encouraging individual growth and building a practice of ethical decision making. It is important that organizations provide continual training on this subject, not just to managers and supervisors, but to all employees."

Speakers and panel members include: Bill Whitmore, President and CEO, AlliedBarton Security Services; Pam Paziotopoulos, Senior Vice President, Forest Advisors; and Dr. Peter Oropeza, Senior Consultant, Oro Consulting.

Seminar attendees will receive a complimentary copy of "Potential: Workplace Violence Prevention and Your Organizational Success" by Bill Whitmore, AlliedBarton's President and CEO.

Potential, www.potentialthebook.com, shows how a range of stakeholders -- from CEOs and other senior leaders to building management, human resources, contract security and law enforcement -- can work together to lower an organization's workplace violence risk and enhance its overall morale and performance.

Media interested in attending this event are encouraged to RSVP to the press contact in this release.
