Workplace Sexual Harassment Prevention training
Our Workplace Sexual Harassment Prevention Training is designed to address the concerns that sexual harassment poses for employers and employees and provides a preventive approach to address workplace culture. Our comprehensive program is compliant with New York State Sexual Harassment Law and meets Federal and New York State requirements.
The initiative is designed to create a culture free of sexual harassment through enhancing leadership and employee knowledge, understanding what sexual harassment is and the impact that it has and building skills to identify, respond to and prevent it from happening.
Our sexual harassment prevention training includes:
- Leadership Orientation: a 90-minute beginning conversation for supervisors and leaders within the workplace
- Employee Training: a 2-hour interactive seminar for all employees and managers
- Bystander Training: a 90-minute additional training
- Policy review, prevention planning & assessment and consultation
* Set rates apply for non-profit and for-profit organizations. Sliding scale fees are available for small business and non-profit organizations.
- “Our goal with the sexual harassment training was to approach it from the cultural perspective. We didn't want it to feel like we "checked the box" to meet the NYS mandate, rather we wanted our team to feel our commitment and responsibility to creating a professional, safe work environment. The material and approach invited conversation, discourse and discussion.”
- Lisa Bachar, Director of Human Resources, Bousquet Holstein PLLC
- "We pride ourselves in cultivating an office environment that encourages openness, respect and communication, so sensitive topics such as sexual harassment are not always top-of-mind. We found Vera House's training to be beneficial, relevant, engaging and thought-provoking. The trainers' expertise provided us with the tools and confidence we needed to have effective proactive conversations with our staff."
- Kimberly P. Sadowski, Senior Vice President & CFO, Central New York Community Foundation
