Mass shootings in the workplace and victim totals are rising and rising fast. Prior to 2014 the US averaged less than 17 workplace shootings a year. But last year there were more the 260! These attacks have affected organizations of all types, including schools, retailers, health care organizations, manufacturers, entertainment venues and arenas and hospitality businesses.
