Presented in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
A fresh new strategy is taking hold, connecting harassment prevention and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)—and serving as one way to address the Great Resignation by attracting and retaining your employees.
Presented by Sarah Rowell, CEO of Kantola, and Britney Torres, Shareholder with Littler, this webinar will explore both business and legal reasons for how harassment prevention and DEI training can support each other, and offer some specific recommendations for how you can seamlessly accomplish this for your organization—creating efficiencies and better outcomes at the same time.
At their core, harassment prevention and DEI training have similar aims: to make the workplace more inclusive and create an atmosphere where everyone is treated with respect and fairness. If your company already provides harassment prevention as a matter of compliance or policy, adding in DEI as a separate but related training can offer additional benefits, including mitigating legal risks, attracting and retaining employees, and improving workplace culture.
In this session, attendees will gain insights into:
- How to attract and retain employees by improving workplace culture through the additional benefits of DEI training, serving as one way to address the Great Resignation.
- How delivering harassment prevention and DEI training in a complementary way provides an opportunity to mitigate risk by addressing legal liabilities in two areas at the same time.
- How the benefits of effective harassment prevention training reinforce DEI.
