No longer is it possible for management to ignore providing proper and adequate training to its employees. In the past, some believed that by paying lip-service to the importance of proper training, thus giving just the most basic and cursory programs to employees they were in compliance with the law. Too many continued complaints by victims led to the more stringent laws and regulations that all must follow today.

Any executive, manager or supervisor is now responsible not only for preventing harassment, bullying and/or discriminatory behavior but for making sure the training received by employees meets the standards set by EEOC.

Most recently because of the power of the #MeToo Movement and the scandals regarding priests having sexually abused youth being covered up, there is more emphasis on the responsibility of those in authority to make sure the environment they manage is safe for all.  Taking a lesson from the military those in “command” have responsibility and liability for their charges.

In this course we will share with management the requirements for training, for picking the qualified trainers and training programs and for their necessity to take complaints seriously, be a role-model for appropriate workplace behavior and becoming and remaining up to date on the relevant laws and requirements.

In addition, we are including the basic two hour training that all employees (including executives) must take every two years.

A difficult course but offers good information. Recommended for anyone in a management role or those who wish to understand workforce issues. I did not like the quiz and test questions are difficult and not found in the material. I also think this particular review requires too many words. What else can I say? Let me see,
