Awareness of workplace harassment has reached an all-time high, propelled by the “Me, Too” movement and related profile stories.  A recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) statistic reports that as many as 85% of women have been sexually harassed in the workplace. 

Many industry experts agree that Bystanders hold a key to restoring workplace respect. Unfortunately, bystanders often won’t get involved because they don’t know what to do.  This course is a step-by-step guide to action for Bystanders.

This course presents a powerful “tool box” to empower bystanders and restore workplace respect.

  • Explore the actors (and their roles) in a Harassment scenario: Offender, Target, Bystander

This is an excellent course to get your employees to help build a respectful workplace. It gives them courses of action to intervene in situations that management may not observe. I really liked the beginning set-up comparing addressing workplace harassment to an employee choking so that employees buy in to the idea that they should step up and say something. I also liked the point that was emphasized throughout the course that offenders are not villians and that you should have a conversation, not a confrontation to change the situation. A very innovative approach to encouraging employees to help maintain a respectful workplace rather than just letting them be bystanders and making management responsible for all employee relations.
