Chicago Bystander Intervention Training

Better everyday decisions
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.

Thaís Altshuler, Director of Human Resources at HHM Hotels
“The quality is phenomenal and all of the features work perfectly. In addition, you can stop watching on your mobile device and pick up right where you left off on your computer. And, vice versa. Our last LMS had poor mobile quality, the features never functioned correctly, and it never reported correctly from mobile back to the LMS. All in all, I’m thrilled.”
