Webinar Recording: Protecting Your Organization Against Discrimination & Harassment

September 12, 2012

Every organization out there faces a common and misunderstood workplace foe: discrimination and harassment. These issues account for huge losses – upwards of $3 billion annually – in terms of turnover and productivity, employee morale, litigation and penalties, even corporate reputation. The key to protecting your organization is in how you present these issues, as well as the risks, to your workforce.

In this online presentation, you will learn how you can engage your employees so that your organization maintains the highest possible level of respect in the workplace, while mitigating the risks posed by discrimination.

Elizabeth Lewis, senior communications manager at The Network, will explain how training and awareness influence desired employee behavior and drive your prevention efforts. Elizabeth will show how interactive training can engage your workforce to understand these issues as well as what steps must be taken should harassment occur.
