This class meets the MD Requirement for Ethics Credit.
You may think we are going through a “perfect storm” of harassment in the workplace, but it is bigger than that. This is a fundamental climate change in how we handle power and ethics. Are you prepared to address the subject of harassment in your organization? You can’t ignore it and hope it will go away. Do you know how to respond to a claim of harassment? Your response can make or break both individual careers and your organization’s reputation. Does your organization support and engage the complete range of diverse employees? If you are trying to treat all employees the same, you are missing out on highest levels of engagement and productivity.
This two-part seminar will first cover the subject of harassment, what it is, how we got here and how to deal with it from the human resource, legal, and business perspectives. We will discuss how we got here and where we go next, including specific steps that supervisors and managers can take to minimize the potential individual and organizational harm from a harassment claim. The second part will cover how to create an organizational culture that brings out the best in all of your people including how to align individual behaviors with organizational values to create a respectful, supportive and highly productive work environment.
