Traliant, an innovator in online sexual harassment training and diversity training, today announced a new Code of Conduct training course for organizations to reinforce their values and principles, and guide employees to make the right decisions when facing ethical and legal dilemmas. The modular course design lets organizations choose the topics that are most relevant for their business, and personalize the training with their unique branding and message from leadership.
Organizations who haven’t yet provided employees with sexual harassment training should be aware of deadlines that are right around the corner. Under Illinois’ anti-harassment law, employers have until December 31, 2020 to train all employees. For California, Connecticut and certain industries in Washington State, the deadline is January 1, 2021. And New York’s sexual harassment laws require employers to provide employees with sexual harassment prevention training on an annual basis.
While diversity and inclusion travel in tandem, they are not the same. Understanding the difference is an important step in creating a workplace culture in which employees feel valued and respected. As part of an overarching strategy, diversity training and education, mentoring and allyship programs, and employee resource groups are among the ways to deepen employees’ understanding of D&I and its impact on individuals and the organization.
