Over the last year, I’ve done hundreds of respectful workplace (a/k/a harassment) trainings. I love this training. It is my favorite. This is training is so vital to every organization that I will move vacations to do it. Seriously.
I speak publicly on harassment training. Just this year, I’ve done a DisruptHR talk, the North Dakota’s Workforce Development Conference, Minnesota SHRM, and soon the Minnesota Association of Legal Administrators conference on this topic.
I’ve even written a lot on harassment training. (See here and here for training specifically, and here and here for more general training references.) The writing has helped me focus my own trainings, making them better for my clients.
After this year (and the years before that), I’ve come up with my own philosophy on harassment training – what makes it good, what can we do better, what should employers consider, etc. Ultimate Software has been kind enough to include my diatribe on the subject in their collection of white papers. You can find it here. Please, if you’re considering putting harassment training on your list of to-dos for 2019, read it.
