Protective intelligence is becoming increasingly important in our digital age, where harmful language and discriminatory speech can be disseminated easily across the internet.
But who knew this might also be useful in the workplace?
It’s no secret that the workplace can be a breeding ground for harassment. Whether it’s intentional or not, unwanted behavior of any kind can create a hostile and uncomfortable environment. And while there are laws in place to protect workers from such treatment, it often falls on them to enforce those protections.
With new technologies constantly emerging, we’re spoiled with more and more ways to use our words to communicate and stay connected with one another. But the rise of these new technologies also brings new challenges- including the rise of harmful or hurtful communication.
And unfortunately, the workplace is often ground zero for this type of behavior.
According to the 2021 WBI U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey, 30% of Americans have suffered abusive conduct at work; and 49% are affected by it. Worldwide, over 43% of employees have experienced some form of harassment at work, and 1 in 4 have left a job because of it. The cost of a harassment claim on a company averages at $15,000 per person, but the real cost is to the mental health and wellbeing of employees.
The need for a protective intelligence that is able to monitor communications and flag any harmful, racist, sexist, or discriminatory speech has never been more urgent.
The good news is that there’s a new solution on the horizon that can help protect businesses and their employees from the negative effects of harmful communication – Konsistent.
What is protective intelligence?
Simply put, an investigative and analytical process used by protectors to proactively identify, assess, and mitigate threats to safety and security. Protective Intelligence (PI) can be used to monitor and assess threats against individuals or groups within a community.
And Konsistent is a powerful PI tool that can be used to identify any harmful behaviors in company communications and reduce employee turnover, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of your employees.
Konsistent: Protection for the workplace
Utilizing cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Konsistent works by automatically analyzing communications to identify patterns of harmful speech. It uses cutting-edge technology to flag problematic language in real-time, so that companies can take swift action to address these issues and protect themselves from potential harassment violations.
In other words, it’s like a virtual accountability partner that helps you stay on track- whether you’re sending an email, instant message, or even just a Slack message.
And what makes Konsistent different from other protective intelligence solutions is that it uses cutting-edge data analytics and natural language processing (NLP) technology to monitor communications for harmful speech in real time. This allows companies to be on the frontlines of protecting their employees from negative remarks or behaviors, strengthening team morale and reducing employee turnover. Konsistent’s innovative approach makes it the ideal protective intelligence tool for companies looking to proactively protect their employees’ well-being and create a more inclusive workplace.

The software has a database of over 10,000 words and phrases that have been flagged as potentially hurtful or harmful- and this list is constantly expanding.
With the average person spending over 90,000 hours at work in their lifetime, it’s more important than ever to create a respectful and inclusive workplace environment where employees can not just survive, but thrive.
But Konsistent isn’t just a software- it’s a movement. We’re on a mission to help people everywhere build healthier relationships and change the way we interact with one another for the better.
