AlliedBarton Security Services introduces workplace violence prevention book

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2011) - AlliedBarton Security Services,, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, is proud to introduce "Potential: Workplace Violence Prevention and Your Organizational Success," written by Bill Whitmore, Chairman, President & CEO. A special eBook preview will be available during ASIS at AlliedBarton's booth, #2601, September 19-22, at the Orlando County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Booth visitors are eligible to receive a promotion code which will allow them to download a complimentary copy of the eBook. This eBook preview is available exclusively at ASIS.

"Workplace violence is a day-to-day reality that cannot be ignored," says Whitmore, who will be discussing the book at a luncheon for credentialed media at ASIS 2011's Press Room (W312 A) on Tuesday, September 20, at 1 p.m. "Every organization has to understand its fundamental dynamics, risks and costs to their business."

Potential shows how a range of stakeholders -- from CEOs and other senior leaders to building management, human resources, contract security and law enforcement -- can work together to lower an organization's workplace violence risk and enhance its overall morale and performance. Featuring the notable results of a national workplace violence survey, the book provides authoritative "next practice" guidance that can be adapted to any organization and industry.

"Potential belongs on the desk of every c-suite executive, department head, security manager and HR professional," says Michael McCann, former United Nations Security Chief and president of McCann Protective Services.

All profits from the book, which will be available in hard cover later this year at $24.95 and in eBook format at $9.95, will be donated to non-profit organizations dedicated to eliminating workplace violence.
