October Chapter Meeting - Avoiding and Handling Harassment Claims

Courtyard Keene Downtown Marriott, 75 Railroad Street, Keene NH, 603.354.7900

Non-members welcome!  Registration, networking, and a light breakfast begin at 7:30 am; meeting and educational session run from 8:00-9:30 am.

 Session Overview

Avoiding and Handling Harassment Claims - Encouraging Civility and Professionalism Within Your Workplace

As the list of powerful men taken down by claims of sexual assault and harassment continues to grow, businesses find themselves asking what they can do, should do and must do to protect themselves and their employees.  Following up on the power of the #metoo and #timesup movements, companies need to focus not only on preventing and responding to sexual impropriety, but more specifically on workplace civility, professionalism, and bystander responsibility. 

This interactive program will 1) Review the findings and recommendations of the EEOC Task Force on Sexual Harassment; 2) Discuss best practices for effective workplace training in light of the task force report and current events; and 3) Review other forms of workplace behavior which, although not necessarily illegal, can lead to low morale and lack of employee engagement and productivity.
