“See something, say something!” 

Time and time again this refrain has been used to encourage people to take action. When it comes to harassment, telling your employees “if you see something, say something” isn’t enough. What do you want them to say, and to whom? 

Research shows that most people won’t intervene when they see harm, even if they want to. If you want to protect your employees from harassment, you need to empower everyone at your organization to stand up for what’s right and intervene when they see hurtful behavior happening in the workplace. 

This training will explain the barriers that keep employees from speaking up when they see the warning signs of harassment – and give you actionable tools to overcome these barriers to keep your employees safe and happy

In this session, you’ll  learn:

  • Why the EEOC lists bystander intervention training as a critical component of anti-harassment programs 
  • Strategies to increase employee awareness of harassment warning signs and help employees overcome barriers that keep them from speaking up 
  • Specific bystander intervention techniques that should be included in any anti-harassment training
