Part 1 of 2 – Core Content
The Core Content focuses on basic content intended for all employees and includes an explanation of your organization’s harassment policy, LGBTQ+ harassment, sexual harassment, protected characteristics harassment, hostile workplace, and how to stop prohibited behavior. The Core Content takes approximately 50 minutes to complete.
Part 2 of 2 – The Leadership Series
The Leadership Series provides leaders with tools to help stop harassment by coaching them on how to apply an intervention process to stop an employee or team’s prohibited behavior when it is occurring, and respond effectively if a team member reacts defensively when asked to stop her/his prohibited behavior. The Abusive Conduct module identifies the impacts of bullying, profanity, and prohibited behaviors. Supervisors learn how to receive a complaint and a 4-step interview process. Third-party harassment is addressed as leaders learn why and how it can impact an organization. Leaders learn how to prevent and address subtle and blatant retaliation. Finally, a course knowledge check is given to ensure leaders understand all of the core and leadership series content. The Leadership Series takes approximately 70 minutes to complete.
