Safeguarding Your Company From Sexual Harassment
Current events and the enduring power of the #MeToo movement have brought the difficult topic of sexual harassment to the forefront, and our HR and legal experts—Brooke Keil of Emerson Hospital and Ann Plunkett of Workplace Partners, respectively—will make sure you leave this session understanding why it’s such an important topic. With trade shows, home offices, driving teams, and meetings being among the developments blurring the lines between what does and doesn’t constitute the workplace, these are rough seas to navigate your business through. This session will also help you and your staff protect yourselves from making any accidentally offensive remarks or moves, brush up on behavior befitting professional environments, identify the difference between harassment and abuse, and prepare for day-to-day interactions that respect social boundaries both in the work space and outside the office. Even those who feel they’ve been spared major problems so far would benefit from this primer on how to deal with claims of abuse and harassment, how to keep avoiding them, and respectful procedures for dealing with victims.
