THE IMPACT OF STALKING IN THE WORKPLACE

25th- 29th April is National Stalking Awareness Week #NSAW2022

Stalking is a crime that is far more serious than many people and employers realise. Below I’ve listed some facts to help employers understand the risks.

  • Stalking costs UK Businesses in excess of £1.9bn per year
  • 700,000 women experience stalking each year (Crime Survey of England & Wales)
  • 1 in 10 men are victims of stalking
  • Stalking can and will follow a person into the workplace
  • Over the previous 2 years there has been a huge increase of off-line and on-line stalking incidences – mainly by ex-partners
  • It often takes over 100 incidents of stalking before a victim will report it
  • Stalking offences are present in 99% of domestic abuse homicides

It is encouraging the need to address domestic abuse is now being more understood by employers, however stalking also needs to be understood as it is often a last and dangerous tactic of a perpetrator to try and re-gain power and control over their partner/victim.

Stalking never happens in isolation, and is Fixated, Obsessive, Unwanted and Repeated behaviour

Employers: Still think this is none of your business?
