EEOC Develops New On-Site In-Person Training Program on Respect in the Workplace

 
Thursday, October 12, 2017
 

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that it will launch two new trainings for employers: Leading for Respect (for supervisors) and Respect in the Workplace (for all employees). Instead of traditional compliance training that solely focuses on legal definitions and standards for liability, the new program provides a training alternative for harassment prevention. The trainings will be conducted by EEOC Training Institute staff.

The training program focuses on respect, acceptable workplace conduct, and the types of behaviors that contribute to a respectful and inclusive, and therefore ultimately more profitable, workplace. The program is customizable for different types of workplaces and includes a section for reviewing employers' own harassment prevention policies and procedures.  Respect in the Workplace is designed to be a three hour course, and Leading for Respect is designed to be a four hour course. The training is designed for 25-30 participants.

For more information on the Respectful Workplaces Training Program for private employers or state or local government agencies, go to the EEOC Training Institute website, contact your nearest Outreach and Education Coordinator, or contact Program Analyst Michelle Crew at michelle.crew@eeoc.gov.
