Why It Matters:
Harassment comes in many, often subtle, forms and can have a disastrous impact on the victims and the workplace culture. Harassment is about what we do, how we do it, and our intent. It is about behavior. Harassment prevention requires a deep understanding of oneself and others. It requires understanding how one’s behavior can be interpreted by others and can affect others. There is a strong need for engaging, effective and scalable workplace harassment prevention training solutions that drive workplace culture and behavior change.

Top Takeaway:
Effective harassment prevention training requires content that is engaging and highlights the nuances of harassing behavior. This content must then be delivered in a way that broadly engages multiple learning and memory systems in the brain in a way that “draws the learner in” and primes the learner for behavior change. Skillsoft’s Workplace Harassment Prevention Training Program meets these challenges with compelling content delivered through scenario-based video and storytelling. This Program engages emotional learning centers in the brain, draws the learner in, and primes the learner for behavior change.
