Westgate Ballroom B
Monday 06/24/2019 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM Add to calendar
1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Communication, HR Expertise, Leadership & Navigation | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
Learn to move from check-the-box compliance toward a more results-oriented training program that features fresh content and new instructional methods. 

New York recently legislated sweeping sexual harassment prevention training requirements, and more states are sure to follow. The growing realization is that yesterday’s training has not worked to shape much-needed change within corporate cultures, and we must address that fact. This session re-examines training content, instructional methods, organizational structures and grievance reporting procedures. It explores the requisite skills you need, and the tough decisions you will have to make, to comprehensively address workplace harassment, discrimination and bullying.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the training content that informs a candid discussion of gender, power and sexual dynamics in the workplace.
  • Learn effective instructional structures, methods and communications designed to ensure executive and managerial buy-in and support.
  • Understand the powerful role that bystander engagement training can play in creating a proactive response to avoiding harassment and abusive conduct.
  • Learn the revised grievance and investigation procedures that can effectively address the chilling fear of retaliation among complainants, while diminishing concerns of HR bias in favor of executive leadership.
