Sexual harassment in the workplace


Overview

Your workplace should be somewhere your staff feel valued, safe and treated with dignity and respect. However, recent statistics and media coverage report sexual harassment in the workplace is a widespread problem.

This event has been designed to help you engage with your workforce and raise awareness of the issue. It will also provide you with the necessary skills to address a situation should one arise.
