Combating Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
The #metoo movement ripped the band-aid off reprehensible workplace behavior in dramatic style. These strong women and men reminded all of us of the pervasiveness of bad behavior in the workplace. Make no doubt about it; we are at a new standard of behavior at work.
Things change. One episode of the Mary Tyler Moore show probably contains 20 legally actionable items by today's standards. We all need to change; we all need to move forward. HRrenewal is here to help.
Attending traditional "sexual harassment training" is not always the best way to talk about bad behavior in the workplace. We say this because many of the off the shelf programs are just itching to check the box. We say this because many participants in these sessions just shut down; tune out and wait to sign the attendance sheet or click the completed box. Solid research affirms our observations; a glance at a newspaper confirms the continuation of off-putting behavior.
Our program fully covers all the required training for effective sexual harassment training. We just decided not to stop there. In addition to training around this critical topic we continue to other behaviors that also create employee discomfort in the workplace.
Try our approach; your employees will be glad you did.
