Sexual Harassment

What you will learn

Few issues have seen as much attention in the recent past as sexual harassment. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports that the majority of people (up to 94%) who experience sexual harassment in the workplace do not report it. And, although the #MeToo movement is empowering people to speak out, employers still must do all that they can to protect their employees from all forms or harassment. Incidents of harassment, bullying, and retaliation not only negatively impact an organization's culture, but they expose workplaces to damaging consequences, including enormous personal costs to the individuals involved.

Configurable to reflect the organization’s unique needs by leveraging a library of interchangeable video assets, Skillsoft’s full suite of anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training helps organizations educate their employees to understand, prevent, and respond to the various forms of harassment. Skillsoft courses are produced in a modern, cinematic style to create emotionally engaging stories that reinforce learning objectives, create an emotional impact in viewers, and ensure retention.

In addition to the EEOC’s strong recommendation for employee training at the federal level, a number of U.S. states, including California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, and New York, have enacted sexual harassment training mandates. And as this issue is not only a concern in the U.S., Skillsoft offers additional anti-harassment training courses for locations such as Australia, Canada, India, and New Zealand, as well as globalized content suitable for use worldwide.
