Sexual harassment training has become a high priority for HR practitioners and their organizations. Recent headlines and hashtags underscore the need to replace the old model with a fresh approach that emphasizes what matters most – ensuring employees know how to make the right decisions and take the right actions if they experience or witness sexual harassment or other misconduct.
As never before, sexual harassment training is essential for educating employees on what is acceptable and unacceptable workplace behavior, and reinforcing the message that it is every individual’s responsibility to speak up and report incidents of harassment and retaliation.
Our program educates employees and supervisors on how to identify and prevent different types of harassment such as Quid Pro Quo, Hostile Work Environment as well as gain essential skills for creating a harassment-free workplace, such as bystander intervention and prevention of bullying.
