Workplace Sexual Discrimination Training & Prevention

Sexual discrimination in the workplace comes in many different forms, but in most cases it involves an applicant or employee who is treated unfavorably because of their gender or sexual orientation.
Workplace sexual discrimination has far-reaching effects on employees in the workplace, especially for women. Redirect investigates allegations of sexual discrimination using an approach that is scientific, trauma-informed, and objective.

Why Sexual Discrimination Prevention Training?

Some say a reckoning is coming. The #metoo movement is not slowing down and sexual discrimination allegations in the workplace are rising. Claims of an unsafe or hostile workplace can lead to lawsuits, executive firings, employee protests, or walkouts. Aggrieved customers, through social media, can target companies that do not respond appropriately, threatening scandal or even the company’s viability.

However, we see this environment as an opportunity. Organizations that put the right systems in place can give employees the freedom to speak up, create a safe work environment, and earn the trust of their staff and customers.

Imagine your employees saying:

  • I love working here
  • I feel safe working here
  • I feel supported by my company
  • I can tell my story to someone who understands

Imagine your managers saying:

  • I have the confidence to handle crisis situations
  • I have a well documented, behavior-based report to inform my decision-making
  • My team trusts me to be fair
  • I am working with a partner in this process I can trust

Addressing the problem of sexual misconduct starts with having a framework that clearly defines what “misconduct” means in the context of your business or organization. Sexual descrimination takes many shapes. Redirect helps companies design and implement a code of conduct that clearly addresses the behavior standards of employees. This allows managers to better enforce the standards and act with confidence.
