Forty-nine percent of employees say their employer has not communicated any special plans or procedures in case of a terrorist attack.
The poll was conducted online among 674 employees who work for clients of ComPsych, an EAP vendor.
Only 15 percent said that their employers had done a thorough job and kept everyone updated on procedures.
Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, chairman and CEO of ComPsych, says, “We are seeing low-level signs of worry.”
Chaifetz says that employers can “defuse the tension” by being attentive to employee’s concerns and by explaining emergency procedures.
More information is available online about emergency planning, bioterrorism and employee assistance.
