Dealing with Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Thursday 26th April, 09:00 - 16:00
From only £149 + VAT : Full day of training, including lunch, template document pack, and optional post-course HR support.
There has recently been much media coverage concerning both sexual harassment both in and outside of the workplace. This course will show you the practical steps that can be taken to ensure a business culture that rejects sexual harassment and victimisation, and so lays the groundwork to tackle behavioural issues which may underpin discrimination.
Our practical and highly interactive workshop focuses on what to do, as opposed to what not to do, with a specific focus on developing the skills required to challenge inappropriate workplace behaviours in a non-threatening and non-judgemental manner.
Learn how to…
- understand sexual harassment and victimisation
- understand what is and is not acceptable behaviour in the workplace
- navigate work-related events and understand employer’s vicarious liability
- deal with online sexual harassment and social media
- manage a complaint of sexual harassment or sexual assault
- give and receive constructive feedback about inappropriate behaviour in the workplace
- listen to complaints of sexual harassment without being dismissive
- openly discuss inappropriate sexual behaviours
- disrupt or intervene appropriately when sexual harassment is in progress
Optional post-course HR support
The ‘course+support’ fee also includes up to 2 hours of email or phone support, valid for up to 6 months after your training.
On your return to the workplace, we’ll help you become confident in using your training to solve real world problems by providing you with a support hotline so that you have a sounding board to check your thinking until you’re fully up to speed. A team of 5 experienced and qualified HR consultants will be on-hand to help you.
FREE lunch & refreshments included
We’ve got some great local catering establishments nearby, so lunch from one of these is included in your course fee. And there will be tea, coffee, and cold drinks available on tap throughout the day
