Understanding Violence In The Workplace: Social And Managerial Perspectives

Author: KUOTSAI TOM LIOU
Published in PAM, Vol. 4 No. 3

This symposium examines the issue of workplace violence from
social and managerial perspectives. While the social perspective refers to
an understanding of the general characteristics and impact of American
history, culture, and societal attitudes, the managerial perspective focuses
on the identification of sources and causes of violence in modern
organizations as well as the development of appropriate prevention
strategies and management plans. The current introduction paper first
addresses the importance of recognizing workplace violence as one of the
top managerial issues. It then provides an overview of literatures on major
issues related to the study of workplace violence. The paper concludes with
a summary of findings presented in each symposium paper.
