Why We Need Harassment Training Courses
Harassment is pervasive. A 2018 Pew survey found that 59% of women and 27% of men reported experiencing sexual harassment. Of those that reported experiencing sexual harassment, 69% of women and 61% of men experienced it at work or both at work and outside of work.
These numbers have a very real implication. They mean you may have experienced harassment at work. And if you haven’t, it’s likely you have friends and colleagues who have.
Being a victim of harassment profoundly impacts a person at work, including lower job satisfaction and a higher intention to leave the workplace, and can extend to physical and emotional health.
Undeniably, being treated disrespectfully at work is bad for you and for your workplace.
