Sexual Harassment Awareness
Sexual harassment is a hot topic but unfortunately not a new topic. Employees have been harassed in the workplace for years. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between friendly behavior and subtle sexual harassment. Other times, it's crystal clear.
Every employee should understand what is considered sexual harassment. Quid pro quo is easy to understand, it means this for that. If you have sex with me, I will give you a promotion. Creating a hostile work environment is a bit harder to define. Is flirting with someone at work wrong? Is giving a co-worker a compliment or a hug taboo? It depends. Is the behavior welcomed? When the behavior is not welcomed, it could be considered creating a hostile or uncomfortable work environment.
This program will include New York State requirements when delivered in New York.
During this training program, participants will learn:
the definition of sexual harassment
the difference between quid pro quo and hostile work environment
how to identify harassment behaviors
what to do if you think you are being harassed
“Regina’s New Manager training provides attendees with the tools necessary to be an effective manager. Through role playing and group discussions, Regina provides real world, applicable examples to prepare for the many possible scenarios a new manager might experience. I highly recommend this training to all new managers, as well as, those who are the managerial track.”
“Regina conducted a two-day management training for some of my management team in our office in May. I received wonderful feedback from the employees and they really enjoyed the topics that Regina covered. For some, it was all new, such as dealing with difficult conversations. For others, it was a nice refresher on how to use skills that are sometimes forgotten in our busy work life. I would be happy to discuss any of this with you at further length. The employees especially enjoyed the interactive and role-playing portions of the training that Regina used. “
