Proper training empowers employees to learn their own biases and incorporate diversity principles in their workday.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
Workplace Answers’ (workplaceanswers.com) newest release is a refined “Diversity Benefits for All Employers” training course. The new course enhancement provides key updates in workplace diversity training, including an atheistic layout and legal amendments. It should be used in place of former versions.
“It’s best to train all employers and employees that there is a significant difference between tolerance and acceptance, as well as between affirmative action and diversity programs. Proper training empowers employees to learn their own biases and incorporate diversity principles in their workday.” – Sondra Solovay, Esq.
Legal protections often interact and intertwine with diversity issues. There are many different diversity categories protected by law, as well as several emerging and beneficial categories. Every employee should understand these categories, and know when anti-discrimination laws come into play.
The updated diversity training course, “Diversity Benefits for All Employers”, provides legal coverage, while teaching the importance of embracing workplace diversity. This 50-minute diversity program works with harassment prevention courseware to offer guidance on how diversity principles interact with unlawful harassment policies. It also covers topics such as:
- The origin of, and damage by, stereotypes
- What an implicit bias is and how to avoid it
- Advanced concepts such as intersectionality – where multiple dimensions of diversity exist simultaneously
- Categories protected by law, and emerging and beneficial categories
- Prevention to deal with problems before they escalate
- The importance of inclusions and respect
Workplace Answer’s online courseware features interactive functions that keep learners from getting bored, while supplying valuable information on diversity benefits. This new photo course demonstrates realistic storylines and real life examples that emphasize the importance of embracing diversity in the workplace. A policy acceptance feature and an executive message are also included.
