Monday 06/18/2018 02:00 PM - 03:15 PM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: HR Expertise, Ethical Practice, Global & Cultural Effectiveness | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn effective tools you can use to enforce workplace policies and maintain compliant and respectful environments. 

This unique theater-based session will cover such topics as diversity, sexual harassment awareness and other business issues. Three professional actors will perform several brief scenes depicting situations of discrimination and harassment. You will then be invited to suggest ways the various situations can best be handled, and alternative behaviors will be demonstrated and evaluated. Each scenario is followed by guided discussion to underscore the lessons learned and offer insight into alternative methods of employee training. This session will:

  • Underscore the importance of diversity and harassment awareness training; it's the “right” thing to do (moral and ethical reasons) and it's the “smart” thing to do (legal and financial considerations).
  • Explore alternative, “outside-the-box” training methods.
  • Emphasize the importance of empathy in training.
