Learn how talent management can support a safer, more inclusive workplace. 

Some contend organizational culture is actually defined by the worst behavior your leadership tolerates. Sure, there are policies and training to mitigate toxic behaviors like sexual harassment, but it’s not enough. The reality is a sexually hostile workplace is a culture issue not a compliance issue.

So what can HR do to proactively address and mitigate the risk of sexual harassment in the workplace? In this program, employment attorney Heather Bussing and Connie Costigan from Saba will share key strategies to creating a safer, more inclusive workplace.

In this program, you’ll gain insights into: 
  • Why sexual harassment is a culture issue grounded in systemic deficiencies 
  • How to identify and address the risks in your organization
  • What to do if you uncover sexual harassment, and what to do next
  • How to reinforce accountability to core values and behaviors through talent management
