SHRM CEO's recent testimony at the CA legislature echoed what the EEOC said in 2016 - culture is the key to harassment prevention, and in fact culture trumps compliance. So your training allows you to check the compliance box, but why are you stopping there? Your best defense is creating a positive culture that leaves no room for harassment, because speaking up is comfortable. That is, your best defense is inviting employees to resolve the issue internally.

NEWS FLASH: Businesses who allow legal, negative behaviors to happen (e.g., bullying) are inviting employees to tell an attorney when illegal harassment happens. Employees can see behavior and culture are irrelevant to management, so why speak up? Stop inviting your employees to keep silent on harassment, and starts helping them thrive. As SHRM's Taylor says, "With a healthy workplace culture, when sexual harassment is observed or experienced, the community takes over and shuts it down collectively, with a message that this behavior will not be tolerated here, by anyone at any level."

  • Understanding stark similarities between incivility, conflict, harassment, bullying, and violence
  • Developing a stronger understanding of the subtleties of sexual harassment
  • Understanding aggression and harassment as a social phenomenon, and why addressing it as a social problem is more powerful and sustainable than any one-time-training can offer

This webinar will provide the audience with tangible action items for preventing sexual harassment. The bottom line is that training isn't enough to protect the organization against claims of harassment - it's all about culture. Speaker will emphasize the importance of using culture to drive behavior, so that harassment doesn't occur, and if it does people feel comfortable speaking out. This webinar will also provide a checklist for determining if your organization is in need of a culture makeover.

  • Identifying the risks of allowing negative behaviours to thrive
  • Steps for creating a culture that does not tolerate harassment or bullying
