Who is it for and what does it include?
This sessions are suitable for anyone within a business who wants to develop awareness, or tackle, unacceptable behaviour at work.
Whilst sexual harassment is often the greatest concern for businesses, that behaviour is rarely isolated, and often develops from other behaviours. By creating new awareness of where ‘jokes’, ‘nicknames’, and ‘comments’ fall outside of inclusive ‘banter’. Alongside how to deal with circumstances that arise. The risk of sexual harassment allegations being made can be reduced.
What does it include?
The day involves legal, hr, and behavioural skills training. For all staff, for understanding their own behaviours and day to day responsibilities. Through to additional elements for senior managers, partners, boards, and CEO’s.
Creating new awareness of where day to day jokes, and banter, often ‘crosses the line’, what that looks like, how to respond, through to what sexual harassment might include. Alongside additional HR related training as needed.
Alongside practical exercises, and interactive discussions, delegates leave with greater confidence of what unacceptable behaviour looks like, how to prevent it, tackle it (within their level of responsibility), and action plans for personal implementation.
