Sexual harassment and abusive conduct are the enemies of your brand and bottom line. Engaged employees are more devoted to their jobs and more productive.
Common Ground Business 2 teaches your employees how to recognize and report harassment and abusive conduct, be proactive bystanders and support their colleagues. Supervisors also learn prevention techniques, how to handle complaints, formulate resolutions, create respect and establish a new standard of workplace decorum.
By a very wide margin, the most common EEOC claim employers faced in 2019 involved allegations of retaliation. Once again, these claims proved to be the most frequently filed by workers.
In 2019, over 39,000 retaliation claims were filed, representing nearly 54% of all claims filed with the EEOC. This is the highest percentage ever, highlighting just how important it is to have effective training. It’s also the 18th straight year that number has risen.
