    Workplace experts agree that bystander intervention training is one of the most effective ways to stop workplace misconduct with safe and positive actions.

    The course covers these topics and more:

    • What is a bystander?
    • The Bystander Effect
    • How to identify harassing behavior
    • Recognizing subtle acts of bias and discrimination
    • Safe strategies for de-escalation: Direct, Delegate, Distract and Follow-up
    • Impact of active bystanders
    • How to speak up and take action


    The Bystander Effect and Bystander Intervention Training

    The term bystander intervention refers to situations where someone who isn’t directly involved steps in to assist someone who may be at risk. Equipped with the right knowledge, intervention techniques and motivation, active bystanders can defuse potentially harmful situations and support co-workers, who are targets of sexual harassment, discrimination and other unacceptable behaviors.

    Bystander intervention training is one of the most effective ways to not only address, but proactively prevent workplace harassment. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recommends all employees take Bystander Intervention training nationwide.

    Additionally, several jurisdictions now mandate bystander intervention training. Recently, the Chicago City Council amended the city’s sexual harassment laws to include an annual one-hour bystander intervention training requirement in addition to sexual harassment prevention training. This underscores the critical importance of training in creating a safe and inclusive workplace environment and empowering your employees to actively contribute to a culture of respect, support and accountability.
