A Manager's Responsibility
Sexual Harassment: Awareness, Perception & Prevention
Video, Leader’s Guide with sample agendas, discussion questions, exercises, role-plays, handouts and acknowledgment of training certificates.
(Program length: 21 minutes)
A Manager’s Responsibility features 10 subtle sexual harassment vignettes that demonstrate the importance of zero tolerance, setting the right example, handling complaints, and timely and thorough investigations. Each vignette demonstrates a questionable situation and features both the alleged harasser’s and alleged victim’s perspective. An HR Consultant, Attorney at Law and two managers discuss each situation and provide the critical actions and steps that should be taken to minimize an organization’s legal risk and to protect all employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. At the conclusion of each video, the vignettes are replayed without the narrative, providing trainers with the ability to create customized programs and lead discussions tailored to meet the needs of their distinct audiences.
