Challenges for companies
In order to cover basic needs, companies need to be able to recognise domestic violence and know the cycle of violence and the impact of this violence on their employees. These elements are the first key to knowing how to recognise a woman facing domestic violence, how to talk to her and how to act.
Beyond recognising domestic violence and its impact, it is also essential for companies to provide a safe space where women feel secure and free to talk about the violence they experience. Having a safe workplace allows women facing violence to feel better in the workplace, to have a place of
“escape”, and to be able to talk about it if they wish, but also contributes to their empowerment, increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem.
