Training for Harassment Law
Learn how to engage your employees during training for harassment lawHarassment in the workplace is far more common than you may think. Therefore, it is in the best interest of your employees and your business as a whole to provide comprehensive harassment law training. Employees must be aware that harassment is not only unacceptable but also includes much more than sexual harassment. In addition to covering sexual harassment laws, your training program should discuss behaviors such as bullying, discrimination and verbal harassment.
As a business owner, you are not only responsible for training employees on laws about harassment but also for maintaining your employees' attention. Although many people may not be particularly fond of corporate training, you can help make your company's training successful by keeping it up to date and engaging. In order to do this, make sure your training program fits all of your employees' learning styles:
1. Visual learners: employees who learn through seeing;
2. Tactile learners: employees who learn through doing;
3. And auditory learners: employees who learn through hearing.
