In our constantly-changing society, anti-harassment training is essential for educating employees and leaders on what is acceptable and unacceptable workplace behavior. Beyond this, employers need to reinforce the message that it is every individual’s responsibility to speak up and address or take action on incidents of harassment, bullying, and retaliation.
Training employees on how to recognize and respond to situations that can lead to harassment, bullying and related behaviors – from the obvious to the subtle – is one of the most effective ways to foster a positive, respectful workplace. Training can also help organizations avoid costly harassment complaints that can damage their reputation, recruiting efforts, retention rates, and bottom line.
Why Should You Attend
Harassment and abusive behavior training has become a high priority for HR practitioners, company leaders, and their organizations. Recent headlines and hashtags underscore the need to replace the old model, which trained employees on laws and rules, 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 harassment, discrimination, or other misconduct in their places of work.
