The Cultural Conundrum: Syntrio’s 3 part Webinar Series on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
As 2018 moves into its second month we are seeing no slowdown in reports of sexual harassment in the workplace and in the news. More and more women (and men) are feeling empowered to tell their stories. Understanding this fact, and aware of our role in the prevention of harassment in the workplace, Syntrio has crafted a three-part webinar series entitled “The Cultural Conundrum.”
Part one of the webcast focused on awareness of cultural factors that indicate an increased risk of harassment. It is available for download (via registration) here. Yesterday’s program reviewed some of the high profile celebrity harassment cases of 2017 and analyzed cultural factors within a workplace such as “work hard play hard” that is statistically proven to lead to a greater number of harassment incidents in the workplace. By instructing learners that there are identifiable factors that can be changed, we examined the issues that managers need to watch out for, and how to always “keep your eyes and ears open.”
Part two of the series is entitled “The Reasonable Company: Prevention Tactics for Sexual Harassment.” The webinar is scheduled for March 6, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. ET, and registration is available now (link). The March 6 webinar will focus on the following tactics that can help reduce the number of incidents of sexual harassment in the workplace, and/or decrease the impact when an employee makes a complaint to management:
- Making a reasonable response to a charge of harassment in your workplace;
- Adopting and adapting anti-harassment policies to speak to the modern employee; and
- The role of the manager in investigation and prevention of sexual harassment.
Part three of the series is entitled “Maintaining a Harassment-Free Workplace.” This webinar is tentatively scheduled for April 10, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. ET, and registration will be available following part 2, on March 6. Syntrio’s maintenance webinar will not only summarize our entire continuum program but will explore proven methods of keeping your workplace harassment-free. Among the topics to be covered include:
- Crafting a clear plan of action for employees to assist in the company’s goals;
- Establishing transparency within the organization; and
- Methods of regular training that will engage and impact your managers and employees.
