Why We Need Harassment Training
Being a victim of sexual harassment impacts a person at work, including lower job satisfaction and a higher intention to leave the workplace—and it can extend to physical and emotional health implications.
Harassment is pervasive. A 2018 Pew survey found 27% of men and 59% of women 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 concerning 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.
Undeniably, being treated disrespectfully at work is bad for you and for your workplace.
