If a person is extending behavior that is offensive, disturbing or threatening to you then this is known as harassment. Harassment can take place almost anywhere with a number of cases taking place in work environments and educational institutions. It is wise to know how to deal with this kind of behavior and that’s where harassment training comes in.
Like with illnesses where it is better to prevent the possibility of acquiring them, harassment training also aims at preventing the occurrence of such related acts. The training is structured to create awareness of what harassment is. The only way to understand how to deal with or avoid harassment is by understanding what exactly it entails and in what forms it presents itself. The training addresses the harassment process from when it presents itself to how someone can find themselves being victims of harassment. Harassment training extensively tackles how to deal with harassment including what measures a victim can take and what repercussions would be available to the party who initiated the harassment. The training also addresses the law’s standing on harassment matters and the process of filing a legal complaint.
The most common trainings offered, with regard to harassment, are sexual harassment training and Ethics and Code of conduct training. Sexual harassment involves behavior that is deemed as suggestive in a sexual manner, intimidating or geared towards coercing one into sexual activity. A number of work places have their staff go through this training since a record of 40 to 80 percent of women and 10 to 15 percent of men are likely to go through it in their working lives. Faculty members of most educational institutions are also required to go through sexual harassment training. The Ethics and code of conduct training is usually undertaken by employers and their employees. The code of conduct training is geared towards understanding how to relate to each other in a working environment without crossing the harassment line. It also instructs those undertaking it on how to carry out their designated roles according to company policies and within the legal scope.
