Identifying and preventing harassment in your workplace, including sexual and racial harassment and bullying, is about having an updated and accurate policy, training all employees to follow that policy, and then enforcing the policy, using consequences for the perpetrators (who could be employees or outsiders, like vendors or customers), and support for the victims.
All employees need this training because it is a policy-driven necessity for all organizations.
This session is about defining sexual and racial harassment; awareness, response, the investigative process; confidentiality concerns; retaliation protection; enforcing consequences for perpetrators of harassment; and providing support for victims of bullying and harassment in the workplace.
