Prevention of Remote Harassment

Gender Sensitivity & POSH Training

Workplace harassment comes in all forms.

At a glance, one might assume that the opportunities for harassment decrease when working from home.

Though, upon closer inspection, it is completely the opposite. The remote work environment opens up a whole new world of potential work from home harassment situations.

With this new working environment, people may be behaving differently and getting a little too casual, which could undermine respect norms. HR teams are responsible for regularly checking in on their employees to understand how working from home has affected workplace culture, for better or worse

HR and Legal teams need to be vigilant of new forms of disrespectful conduct.

This workshop will help HR teams put Safeguards in place to prevent or spot harassment situations in the remote work environment. 

It will help Revise your harassment prevention policy to reflect new instances in which remote harassment might pop up, and communicate what exactly constitutes harassment.

In addition to Compliance issues this workshop will hone in on more niche topics, while reinforcing general workplace culture best practices.
