Training Industry, January 23, 2020
As January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, let’s look at how training can help organizations combat what is not only an organizational issue but a human one. Recognizing the active role training plays in combating human trafficking, many states have adopted human trafficking awareness training requirements — especially in industries particularly prone to trafficking, such as hospitality, transportation and manufacturing.
However, organizations across industries have a “shared responsibility” to combat human trafficking through training and awareness efforts, says Andrew Rawson, chief learning officer at Traliant. “If we don’t train people on these issues, then I don’t know how, as a public, we can help identify and rescue [victims].”
