Online Training: Harassment Prevention for the Modern Workplace

Your workplace culture is critical to your organization’s success. No matter how you express it, there are core beliefs and behaviors that define the character of your organization. A culture of ethics, integrity, civility and respect draws talent, partners, customers, suppliers and high-quality employees and executives.

Yet, it can be challenging to imbed your core values in a rapidly changing workplace, influenced by broad cultural trends inside and outside of the organization. These days, many organizations are reevaluating how they define, train on, actively prevent, react to, and penalize harassment in the workplace.

How do you actively address and take on harassment in the workplace and ensure that your learners are relating to and learning from real-life situations, challenges and evolving behavioral expectations?

Workplace Harassment, 9th Edition

NAVEX’s 9th edition Workplace Harassment course (WPH9) is the industry-leading training solution on harassment for employees and managers alike. All-new in 2021 and aligned to current legislation, WPH9 takes on harassment with timely, accurate and engaging content designed to educate learners and reinforce developing behavioral expectations. With content vetted by Baker McKenzie, a leading global employment law firm, and endorsed by the ACC and SHRM, our content is ideal for organizations seeking to take an assertive stand against harassment in the workplace.

Workplace Harassment reflects your modern workplace challenges and teaches your learners about the specifics of the law and places expectations within the context and intent of those laws. Our course helps learners spot, respond to, report and prevent harassment of all types. Included in this course are several separate modules that cover core topics, such as abusive conduct, bullying, gender identity and expression, discrimination, inter-office romances and the persistent challenge of sexual harassment.

With multiple versions of WPH9 available, this training enables your organization to train its learners with the knowledge and tools necessary to cultivate and protect your culture of ethics and respect. For managers and supervisors, manager-specific versions include additional information that covers their unique responsibilities in preventing and responding to harassment, including handling complaints and managing responses. Specific course versions are available to help employers meet anti- harassment training requirements in California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine and New York. With the new Law Where You Work mini-course, specific users in these states can be trained on specific legal definitions that apply to their state, without burdening every learner at the organization with a longer training course.
