Anger management firm, AJ Novick Group, Inc., is a booming resource for Corporations

The AJ Novick Group, Inc. is a leading global provider of anger management programs and online anger management classes. They offer business and industry several options to help employees with anger management issues.

President and CEO of AJ Novick Group, Inc. Dr. Ari Novick states, “anger in the workplace is a major liability for corporations who are not proactive in educating their employees on how to better handle their anger in the workplace”, says Novick. He further states, “similar to sexual harassment training, anger management should be part of the yearly training requirements for all employees”. With workplace violence incidents costing corporations over 55 million dollars a year, anger management is a cost effective intervention for all companies.
