How do you ensure an inclusive and respectful environment for your employees and organization? According to a recent report on harassment from the EEOC, there are key activities that your organization should be practicing.   This half day workshop is designed to provide a broad overview of laws protecting employees from harassment and discrimination, identify dimensions and benefits of diversity in the workplace as well as practical tips to ensure you are “creating a respectful environment” for your organization. Additionally, we will review the responsibilities that every employee has in recognizing and responding with respect to inappropriate workplace behavior, and those activities that supervisors, managers and HR professionals are held accountable for providing.

Who Should Attend:

  • Supervisors, Managers and HR professionals who need to promote social inclusion and respect within a diverse workforce
  • Managers and supervisors who need guidance on how to proactively respond to unacceptable behavior “in the moment
  • Supervisors and managers looking to improve civility in their workplace
  • Supervisors and managers looking to improve their employee management skills when handling challenging HR issues

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain knowledge of key practices to establishing a positive employee environment such as civility training and bystander intervention
  • Achieve a clear understanding for managers and supervisors of acceptable and unacceptable workplace behaviors
  • Enhance awareness of our individual values
  • Learn to make constructive use of differences and promote tolerance
  • Improve the overall work environment and “respect for the individual
  • Prevent Managers and Associates from making critical mistakes
  • Understand that everyone has a right to work in an environment free from discrimination, harassment, bullying, hazing, and retaliation
  • Understand what is unacceptable vs. what is illegal
