In October 2024, there will be a significant change in the law which puts thee responsibility on employers to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.

Employers must take proactive measures now to educate their employees on this matter. It’s crucial to acknowledge that employees may not have a full understanding of sexual harassment, especially in diverse workplaces encompassing various cultures and generations.

Sexual harassment is a major contributor to a toxic workplace culture and is often underreported. To fulfil your duty of care to your people, employers need to comprehend the ramifications of sexual harassment and take preventive measures.

Sexual harassment includes any unwelcome sexual behaviour, whether physical or verbal, in person or online. It can manifest as a singular incident or a repeated pattern, affecting individuals of any gender. Examples include unwanted advances, intrusive questions, offensive jokes, sexually explicit emails or messages, sharing pornographic material, and inappropriate touching, which can also constitute sexual assault.

Sexual harassment is about power – it involves making someone feel uncomfortable, humiliated or intimidated. It may be perpetrated by colleagues, by clients or customers, or by managers or leaders.

Prevention is better than cure. We believe sexual harassment awareness training should never be just a box-ticking exercise. Our Sexual Harassment Prevention training provides practical, interactive content designed to foster genuine engagement and collective responsibility in cultivating and maintaining a culture of respect.

The aim of this training course is to help individuals recognise behaviour that could constitute sexual harassment and to understand the legislation and prevent any type of sexual harassment occurring in the place of work.

The training includes:

  • What is Sexual Harassment?
  • Banter in the workplace
  • The Law
  • The Consequences
  • How it Occurs
  • Unacceptable Defences
  • Identifying Sexual Harassment (Case Studies)
  • What to do if you Experience Sexual Harassment

The individual delegate cost for this training is £75 + VAT.
