What you'll learn in this ethics training:

Harassment occurs when someone is subjected to unwanted sexual advances, petitioned for sexual favors, or physically / verbally abused. Harassment doesn’t have to be of a sexual nature – it can include offensive remarks about a person’s gender. For example, anyone could be guilty of harassing another if offensive comments are made about certain group in general. Simple teasing or offhand comments might not be illegal, but harassment is illegal when it creates a hostile or offensive work environment.

This workshop teaches how to recognize, understand, and respond to sexual harassment so that you can help to maintain a happy work environment, free from hostility and discomfort.

Topics:
  • Harassment Laws: The definition of sexual harassment and quid pro quo.
  • Types of Harassment: Verbal, Non-Verbal, Physical, Psychological (teasing and offhand comments).
  • Creating a happy work environment free from hostility and discomfort.
  • Reporting: What to do when employees witness or experience harassment.
  • Responding: How managers can identify and respond to prohibited conduct.
Attendees will be able to:
  • Identify the signs of Harassment and take steps to prevent it,
  • Follow a legal and ethical protocol in responding and reporting it when it is perceived to occur,
  • Involve the correct individuals in being made aware of the occurrence, and
  • Respond appropriately to the situation after it occurs.
This workshop is offered in two versions – management-only and staff-only.

Workplace Harassment Statistics
  • Eighty percent of Americans think that sexual harassment happens in most workplaces, but only 1 in 10 believe it’s happening in their own office. 
  • Approximately 90% of harassment victims do not file a claim. 
  • More than half of women have experienced sexual advances. Of those, 1 in 3 said it involved a man from work; 1 in 4 said it involved a superior. 
  • More than 80% of companies have made no effort to discuss appropriate conduct, hold learning sessions or change policy in the wake of #MeToo and #TimesUp. 
Improving communications will meet with you and review your policy and procedures for all harassment, sexual harassment, and related claims in the workplace. We will also discuss and review your cultural norms in your location(s) to ensure the programs are built to match your environment. 

The program will include interactive exercises and requires participation by all attendees. We will work with you to create a completion form to be signed by all employees after the program.
