Mill Valley, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2016
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals recently reminded us that claims of sexual harassment and hostile work environment are not limited just to victims of the opposite sex. To aid human resource professionals in educating and protecting their organizations, employees, and departments, Kantola Training Solutions has made available free trials of its newly released Sexual Harassment: Training for a Harassment-Free Workplace.
This multi-faceted, integrated training solution consists of:
- One-hour Manager's Edition complies with legal requirements in 47 states.
- Two-hour California Manager's Edition complies with AB 1825 harassment training, including California-specific content to meet SB 292 and AB 2053.
- 30-minute Employee Edition helps workers learn and retain key lessons.
- Sexual Harassment Trainer's Guide and Sexual Harassment Study Guide (for employee face-to-face training)
- Kantola's free Learning Management System allows easy management of the online training needs of an entire organization and creates the paper trail necessary to show that training was completed. (Also available as SCORM for other Learning Management Systems.)
Free trials can be requested from http://www.kantola.com or info(at)kantola(dot)com.
In these courses, managers, supervisors, and employees learn about their responsibilities to identify and prevent unwelcome and harassing behavior from occurring. They receive specific guidance for appropriate responses to take if such unfortunate behavior occurs. Topics covered include gender-based sexual harassment, hostile work environments and bullying, quid pro quo, conducting investigations, retaliation, the impact of social media in the workplace, and much more. The course uses a story-based format to convey important concepts and was produced with professional actors in actual workplaces to depict real-life scenarios in all their subtle forms.
“Sexual harassment costs a typical Fortune 500 company over $6 million per year in absenteeism, lost productivity, and employee turnover. That does not include additional costs for litigation expenses, lost and damaged careers, and tarnished public image should a case wind up in court,” said Kantola CEO Allen Noren. “With our integrated sexual harassment training, the risk of managers, supervisors, and employees violating the law and destroying company culture is greatly decreased.”
All Kantola training videos are available as DVDs for remote training, online through a custom, feature-rich Learning Management System (LMS) provided to customers for free, or as SCORM files for existing LMSs. Kantola’s free LMS offers rapid deployment, 24 x 7 access, easy tools for managing groups and curriculum, automated learner reminder emails to keep mandatory training on track, and a progress tracking and reporting dashboard to keep on top of activity and completions.
