Many employees come to us after HR has done an investigation. Regardless of how the investigation went, regardless of whether they were the one reporting or the one accused, the employee is unhappy.

They feel unsupported, unheard, and (this may surprise you but) both si...

Many of our clients come to us worried that "things might not be bad enough" YET at work to invest in getting help. 

What happens when we focus on things "not being bad enough" is that we almost look forward to things getting worse, so that we can finally give ourselves...

Employees often come to us and let us know that they reported abusive behavior at work to HR . . . And they never heard back.

Many of our clients have come to us lately with concerns around dealing with a person they believe might be dangerous
