Course Description

So, why is this issue important to you, companies, large and small businesses and other organizations NOW?

The fact is that the issue of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in the workplace has been around, discussed and litigated for years!

However, in recent years and months alone, at least 40 powerful men in entertainment, business and the news media have been publicly condemned for their alleged sexual misconduct and many have lost their jobs as a result.

The backlash and national conversation have spurred a chorus of voices joining the #MeToo movement where thousands of women and some men have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct in the workplace. That focus has lately turned to national politics.

The allegations, reactions and consequences span a wide range across political parties. For example, Al Franken resigned as a U.S. senator for Minnesota, while Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore was accused by four teenaged women of sexual misconduct.

In addition to these few men, there are many others who have been accused of inappropriate and /or criminal behavior in the workplace. But that is not the focus of this program.

Our focus is to discuss why this issue is important to women and men who have been victimized and what can they do about it!

Why you should attend

It’s important to know what you can do and should not do at work. Workplaces are fast-moving places, they are also places that have lots of different people working within them, sometimes very closely.

A lot of people have ideas and perceptions about what is acceptable and what is not, and if training is encouraged and provided then problems will soon arise, simply because everyone will have different ideas and conceptions of good, acceptable behavior.

With ever-changing times comes every changing working hours, and quite often you will notice the make-up and shape of your workforce and workplace is different now, even compared to 12 months ago.

To allow for these differences and changes in circumstances you need to have training that is adapted to people working all hours, even those who are perhaps based from home.

Once everyone within your workplace is aware of how they should behave and why their behavior matters then you will have a more harmonious and supportive working environment for everyone.

Even though times may be changing and moving at a lightning pace it is still important that you have a workforce that is productive and efficient.

It is very important that everyone feels comfortable working with each other and that nobody with your team feels alone or afraid.
