Preventing and Eliminating Sexual Harassment
SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING
#MeToo. #TimesUp. Sexual harassment by high-profile serial abusers has been in the news almost every day. And, between 2005 and 2015, the EEOC received 41,000 workplace harassment claims from everyday people. Clearly, sexual harassment is a pervasive problem. Sexual harassment training can help your organization develop a culture in which everyone recognizes and avoids harassing behavior.
Our process includes:
Pre-training Cultural Audit. We conduct a “climate survey” to evaluate whether, and to what extent, harassment is a problem within the organization.
Pre-training Policy and Procedure Review. We assess whether your existing measures meet legal requirements.
- defining “sexual harassment” and “hostile work environment”
- understanding the company’s sexual harassment policy
- understanding the procedure (s) for complaining about sexual harassment
- examining the relationship between sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion and discrimination
- skill-building, focusing on interpersonal skills that enhance workplace civility and appropriate versus inappropriate conduct
Manager and Supervisor training also will cover their role in maintaining a harassment-free workplace and
- how to legally and effectively respond to employee complaints and avoid retaliation claims
- investigating sexual harassment claims
Post-Training, we will provide:
- audits to survey training to evaluate its effectiveness in shifting attitudes and behaviors
- recommendations to bolster what was learned in training
- recommendations to sustain anti-harassment efforts going forward
The training will be tailored to the specific climate within your organization. It will address behaviors that you want to encourage (and avoid), and will cover real workplace examples, such as same sex harassment, harassment by women, bystander intervention, and accountability.
Multiple learning methods, including case studies, videos, role plays, stories, demonstrations and lectures, will keep the training fast-paced, interactive, and persuasive.
