Companies whose employees feel that they are very safe at work will typically suffer less stress and have increased confidence. This can translate into less stress related illnesses, reduced absenteeism and employee turnover, and decreased time-loss. Along with knowing that you are doing the right thing by taking care of your employees needs, your company is also more likely to realize a real and direct financial benefit from bringing in Fighting Spirit to educate and train all of your employees.

27% of Americans have suffered abusive conduct at work.
72% are aware that workplace bullying happens.
Workplace bullying is also bad for business. Ways that companies suffer due to bullying include:
- High turnover, which is expensive for companies as they invest in hiring and training new employees only to lose them shortly thereafter, possibly to a competitor.
- Low productivity since employees are not motivated to do their best and are more often out sick due to stress-related illnesses
- Lost innovations since the bully is more interested in attacking his or her victim than advancing the company, and the victims become less likely to generate or share new ideas.
- Difficulty hiring quality employees as word spreads that the company has a hostile work environment.
