The objective of this study is to examine the factors that contribute to workplace violence in one of the higher education institutes that is based in Malaysia.
The paper's approach is to use a survey, SPSS and multiple regression analysis.
The findings show that there is a positive significant relationship between the working environment and workplace violence, while the other factors, co‐worker relationship and management style, show no relationship with workplace violence.
The study will improve management understanding of which factors affect workplace violence. By increasing their knowledge on the above, this can assist the management to take preventive action to minimize workplace violence in the organization.
