Why We Need Harassment Training Courses
Harassment is prevalent. A 2018 Pew survey found that 27% of men and 59% of women reported experiencing sexual harassment. 69% of women and 61% of men that reported sexual harassment experienced it at work or both at work and outside of work.
These numbers tell a sobering story. They mean you may have experienced harassment at work. And if you haven’t, your friends and colleagues likely have.
Being a victim of harassment hurts a person at work, including lower job satisfaction, higher intention to leave the workplace, and damage to physical and emotional health.
Being treated disrespectfully at work isn’t just bad for business—it’s bad for you, your employees, and your workplace.
