LVCC N115-117
Tuesday 06/25/2019 07:15 AM - 08:15 AM Add to calendar
1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Ethical Practice, HR Expertise | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
Now is the time to uncover and address past instances of harassment, and to implement strong policies and processes to ensure that harassment does not happen again. 

Sexual harassment allegations tarnished some of the most well-known American brands in 2018. Propelled by the large-scale social movements #MeToo and #TimesUp, harassment has quickly grown from a compliance issue to a fundamental brand issue;  such allegations affect recruiting, engagement, retention, morale, productivity, market share, shareholders and consumers. Yet there will never be a more opportune time for HR to address past misconduct complaints, clean up legacy processes, and forge a new and better path forward.

Learning Objectives:

  • Case studies of specific sexual harassment allegations and how companies handled them.
  • Convincing your internal clients that harassment deserves to be prioritized now.
  • Up-to-date statistics regarding harassment lawsuits, charges and internal complaints.
