Protect Your People – and Your Business – with SmartTeam Sexual Harassment Training
Did you know that sexual harassment charges are the most common charges brought against a company from within the company itself? Statistically, just one sexual harassment suit can have a devastating financial impact on your company, with the average single-claimant lawsuit resulting in defense costs of $250,000 and a jury verdict of $200,000.
And what about the additional costs—things like absenteeism, low morale, loss of productivity and employee turnover? One estimate puts the grand total to U.S. businesses at nearly $7 million annually when these costs are factored in.
Because the number of sexual harassment suits filed in the U.S. continues to rise at an alarming rate, employers are advised to establish clear and effective sexual harassment policies—beginning with educating employees about the costs and consequences of sexual harassment and what constitutes as appropriate workplace behavior.
SmartTeam sexual harassment training courses provide essential information about ethical conduct in the workplace. Developed for new employee orientation purposes as well as for ongoing education, course content focuses on sexual harassment prevention for team members as well as managers.
