React Mobile, the company that offers the most effective personal safety solutions for enterprises and consumers, today announced that it has launched the Employee Protection Program as a simple, no-cost way for Fortune 1000 organizations to reduce risk and improve the individual safety of their employees or other constituents.
“We want to help companies build or enhance their personal safety programs as a benefit to employees,” said Robb Monkman, Founder and CEO of React Mobile. “By introducing our Employee Protection Program, we’re providing the resources and technology that make it easy for organizations to bring safety to the forefront. If a company doesn’t have an employee safety program, this is a great opportunity to get one started. If a company does have a program, here’s a terrific way to strengthen it.”
According to the National Safe Workplace Institute, workplace violence costs U.S. businesses approximately $4.2 billion annually in missed days of work, legal costs, increased insurance premiums, medical benefits payouts, and bad publicity. And according the to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the last 15 years, homicides resulting from workplace violence have ranked among the top four causes of occupational fatalities in American workplaces.
React Mobile will provide members of its Employee Protection Program with a custom branded landing page where employees can download the free React Mobile safety app and acquire a discount code for the purchase of the React Sidekick, a mobile panic button that when paired with the app, turns any smartphone into a powerful lifeline. With a single click of the Sidekick, users can activate the app and issue an SOS alert for immediate emergency assistance, even when their phone screen is locked or their phone is out of reach. The React Mobile safety app’s “Follow-Me” feature shares the user’s location with administrators, friends, family or colleagues, enabling them to track the user’s whereabouts in real-time and follow him or her to safety.
React Mobile has extended an early welcome to several organizations serving as founding members of its Employee Protection Program, including United Airlines, the National Association of REALTORS, and Take Back the Night.
“We hope more organizations take advantage of our Employee Protection Program and make employee safety a part of their everyday culture,” Monkman said. “I wish I could say that it’s never too late to become a member. It only takes a single incident to remind an organization that its people are its most valuable asset.”
