Do you take the common approach to threats?

The most commonly considered threat management responses can be helpful, but they all have weaknesses - they don't defuse the hostility. You need something more effective. You need CMI.

An ounce of prevention

The time to start thinking about workplace violence is not when a situation occurs. Unprepared employers are increasingly accused of negligent failure to plan. An effective risk management program maximizes preparedness and offers visible evidence that the company cares. CMI’s Workplace Violence Prevention programs provide a comprehensive approach to reducing workplace violence risks and ensuring that you have a plan that protects your people, your operations and your reputation.

What would you do?

If a crisis occurred today… right now… at your company, what would you do? CMI has helped hundreds of companies prepare for and respond to thousands of crises. We pioneered crisis management and have been at the forefront of events from 9/11 to Hurricane Andrew to the Oklahoma City bombing, and thousands of other crises. You can benefit from our vast experience.
