Preventing Sexual Harassment in Your Place of Work
Nobody should have to experience sexual harassment, and certainly not in the workplace. As an employer or manager, you have a responsibility to protect your employees from this unsettling and harassing behavior. Take a look at our tips on how to protect your business from this sort of incident.
Educate your employees
Employees should know what sexual harassment is, behaviors that are included in this definition, and what they can do if they feel they are being harassed. Make sure your team understands the importance of keeping sexual harassment out of the workplace and the repercussions of what can happen if someone is found guilty.
Establish a thorough sexual harassment policy
All workplaces should have a sexual harassment policy in place. This should outline your zero-tolerance approach, the definition of sexual harassment, how employees can file a complaint, and how you will handle each situation.
Evoke a positive work culture
Having a positive workplace culture inspires people to respect and value others. In turn, this can dramatically reduce the risk of sexual harassment.
