Course Summary

Quid pro quo is Latin for “something given in exchange for something else,” and in a workplace setting, it describes a situation where a person in authority trades โ€” or tries to trade job benefits for sexual favoritism.

This mini training provides learners with real-life examples of workplace quid pro quo, alongside strategies for identifying and reporting incidents, should they occur.

Why is quid pro quo harassment training important?

Quid pro quo harassment creates an uncomfortable work environment where employees may feel intimidated and powerless, leading to a lack of trust and respect for authority. Unsurprisingly, it can have a detrimental effect on morale and productivity. It can also lead to feelings of anger and resentment among coworkers, leading to an atmosphere of hostility. Victims of quid pro quo harassment may experience physical and psychological symptoms such as stress, anxiety, and depression, which can further impact their performance and productivity.

I love the examples you provided. These happen in REAL LIFE!
