TOPIC: Creating a Respectful Workplace – it Pays

Date: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 
Time: 1:00 to 2:00 Eastern


Overview: In this day of heightened scrutiny involving sexual harassment, some lessons are clear.  First, sexual harassment claims and filings continue to exist and, in fact, have increased each year.  Second, the costs have increased, too.  There are costs to the alleged perpetrator, to the victims, to the businesses, the community and to society.  Some of the costs are clear; some are hidden.  In 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reinforced that “too many people in too many workplaces find themselves in unacceptably harassing situations when they are simply trying to do their jobs.”  This report included harassment based on protected categories, such as sex or race.  But we also know that there are costs, too, from incivility and bullying in the workplace.  This program will outline the troubling costs of harassment, and why even 30 years after the concepts first began to be litigated, traditional training and policies don’t work.  We will discuss ways to bolster policies and training so that businesses who invest the time and patience necessary to create a respectful workplace, can do so.
