Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment prevention training has become a high priority for HR practitioners and their companies. Amplified by the #MeToo movement, there is a growing demand to replace the traditional model of workplace harassment prevention training, which focused on teaching employees laws and rules, with a fresh approach that emphasizes what matters most – ensuring employees know how to make the right decisions and take the right actions if they experience or witness sexual harassment or other misconduct.
As never before, workplace harassment prevention training is essential for educating employers and employees on what is acceptable and unacceptable workplace behavior. Effective training should send a clear message that it’s every individual’s responsibility to speak up and report incidents of harassment and retaliation.
Training employees on how to recognize and respond to situations that can lead to sexual harassment – from the obvious to the subtle – is one of the most effective ways to foster a positive, respectful company culture. Workplace Harassment Prevention Training can also help employers avoid costly employee harassment complaints and legal risks associated with workplace harassment that can damage an organization’s reputation, recruiting and retention and bottom line.
Online Sexual Harassment Prevention Training
Traliant’s Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training is available to access on any device. Versions that comply with state laws and training requirements include:
The online training course is comprised of bite-sized episodes presented in a modern, interactive format. Episodes feature high-quality video scenarios that challenge employees to decide on the best approach to difficult situations in the workplace.
The video in the Sexual Harassment Prevention Training episode dramatizes a typical encounter at a company between a manager and a junior associate. When the manager’s comments turn personal, learners experience how quickly situations can shift into unacceptable territory.
The Sexual Harassment episode also illustrates the different types of behavior that can constitute sexual harassment, such as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Effective training should also raise awareness of “hostile work environment” and “quid pro quo,” two forms of sexual harassment defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

What Our Customers are Saying About Sexual Harassment Prevention Training:
“I am an expert in discrimination law and find having to do these annual trainings important but incredibly tedious. Of all the times I have had to suffer through a 101 course in a subject I have a PhD in, this was the most engaging and the least tedious one I have ever experienced. The focus on practical examples and real-world dynamics was excellent and the issues selected to highlight in, e.g., the “viewer questions” were exactly the ones that, in my experience, are genuinely the trickiest under the law. I also liked the format, so whoever’s expertise in what engages people in online trainings went into creating this deserves an Oscar.”

“From the very first phone call to the execution of the final product, we could not have been more thrilled with the results. The Traliant team was great, especially my Client Success Manager, whose dedicated partnership and attention to detail surpassed our expectations. I have been in the HR industry for more than 20 years and my experience working with Traliant goes unmatched, specifically in terms of the thoughtfulness that went into each and every detail of our implementation.”
-Ashley Farris, Team Services Manager, Custom Ink
“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.”
