Training to ensure that your employees know the rules — and follow them
Most companies are committed to creating a respectful, harassment-free workplace for every employee. However, this is more complex than it sounds. Ground rules for appropriate conduct are not obvious to everyone and if you feel as if the rules keep changing, you’re right! In fact, in many states, managers can even be held personally liable for discrimination and harassment—making it especially important for them to understand the issues involved.
This important and highly entertaining module covers the most recent “rules of the road” and provides answers to questions including:
- What exactly is harassment and what is management’s role in preventing it?
- What are your responsibilities as an employee?
- What if you are a manager? Do you have special responsibilities?
- Can employees date each other?
- What are the rules for social media? And off-work conduct?
- Are jokes okay?
- Aren’t we allowed to have fun in the workplace anymore?
- What do you do if you feel uncomfortable?
This training is offered as a stand-alone module or as part of a more comprehensive program called Working with Differences.
