Every year, 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence. Workplace violence is violence or the threat of violence against workers. It can occur at or outside the workplace and can range from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and homicide, one of the leading causes of job-related deaths. In this seminar, you will learn not only what Workplace Violence is and isn’t, but what to do to have a plan in place as well as where to get training for your team and tenants.

Occupancy Costs Rising
Office Space Around the World - pic According to the latest Office Space Across The World, an annual survey report released by Cushman & Wakefield, global annual costs per workstation rose 1.5 percent in 2017, largely driven by a 4.2 percent increase in the Americas. Hong Kong and London remain by far the most expensive office markets in which to accommodate staff. Hong Kong costs have increased 5.5 percent to $27,431 per workstation per annum. London’s costs have fallen 19 percent since 2016, largely as the result of currency deprecation, to $22,665, but the city still holds the number two spot.

As occupancy costs rise, density also is increasing. The Americas lost five percent of space per employee compared to the five-year average. However, experts believe many employers have reached a “tipping point” where density is too high or the amount of collaborative space is too low to create a productive working environment. As competition among both cities and individual offices increases, there is a growing emphasis on user experience and employee well-being that may stabilize density levels.
