Sexual Harassment Prevention: Training for Managers & Supervisors
In the continuing era of #METOO & #TIMESUP, employers have the responsibility to ensure that every employee feels safe, protected as well as supported in the workplace!
The first step in sexual harassment and assault prevention is education. It is crucial, and required, that your managers and supervisors understand what constitutes as sexual harassment, how to identify it, and how to properly report and react to sexual harassment claims.
