Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment training has become a high priority for HR practitioners and their organizations. Amplified by the #MeToo movement, there is a growing demand to replace the old model, 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, anti-harassment training is essential for educating employees on what is acceptable and unacceptable workplace behavior, and reinforcing the message that it is 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 workplace. Training can also help organizations avoid costly harassment complaints that can damage their reputation, recruiting, retention and bottom line.
Online Sexual Harassment Training
Traliant’s Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training is available in these versions:
The course is comprised of bite-sized episodes presented in a modern, news-style format. Episodes feature interactive videos that challenge employees to decide on the best approach to difficult, realistic work situations.
The scenario in the Sexual Harassment episode dramatizes a typical encounter between a manager and a junior associate. When the manager’s comments turn personal, employees 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. Employees learn about sexual harassment outside the workplace, consensual relationships and how to identify a “hostile work environment” and “quid pro quo,” as defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

What Our Customers are Saying About Sexual Harassment 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.”
