Managing Respectful Workplace
Harassment, Diversity, Inclusion & Micro-inequities
Managing a Respectful Workplace will discuss, but not focus on, blatant examples of harassment or legal issues. Instead, it will focuses on how to prevent and stop today's subtle and complex harassment, retaliation and illegal discrimination situations. Diversity and inclusion as well as micro-inequities in the workplace are also covered. The course is broken into several modules for easy navigation and understanding. A bookmarking feature is available to enable participants to take the course in more than one sitting.

What participants will learn:
  • Impact of harassment laws and court decisions on employers’ harassment policies
  • Clarification of employer’s harassment/discrimination policy and complaint process
  • Types of prohibited work environment behavior
  • Practical methods to recognize subtle sexual harassment
  • How to recognize and prevent retaliation
  • Techniques for personally stopping harassment
  • How the employer can help stop prohibited behavior
  • How to effectively intervene and stop prohibited behavior when no complaint has been made
  • How to recognize a harassment complaint when no buzzwords are used
  • An effective four-step interview process
  • How to intervene with a third-party recipient of harassment
  • How to deal with complex situations, e.g., dating, sexual orientation, profanity, and impacts of technology
In addition, supervisors will understand the business case for diversity as illustrated by the changing population in the U.S. and be able to define diversity, inclusion and micro-inequities.

Diversity, Inclusion & Micro-inequities
The changing population in our country sets the stage for co-workers to become more knowledgeable and comfortable in dealing with differences. Being uninformed can lead to confusion and exclusion and cause barriers in the workplace and lower productivity. This module focuses on key definitions and how greater understanding can lead to mutual cooperation, collaboration and support.

Costly litigation and settlement can not only make a dramatic financial impact on your organization, but can also affect the company image and morale of your workforce. By educating supervisors on appropriate and prohibited behavior, organizations minimize the risk of legal issues and create a positive and welcoming environment. Our courseware is legally defensible in all 50 states.
