WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? Stop Sexual Harassment Before It Begins

Sexual harassment has been around for ages; just ask Samson and Delilah or Anthony and Cleopatra. Each workday we encounter challenges on the job: sexual harassment should not be one of them.

No laughing matter! Recent events and studies reveal that many women – and an increasing number of men – have been sexually harassed in their work lives. Experts conservatively estimate that at least 50% of U.S. women will experience sexual harassment during their careers. A typical Fortune 500 company loses $6.7 million per year in absenteeism, low productivity and employee turnover due to sexual harassment.

Can’t you take a joke? Sexual harassment is misunderstood and mischaracterized. It’s dehumanizing and divisive. Here are practical answers outlining the “what, where, when, why and how” to stop harassment. Learn zero tolerance approaches both women and men can live with!
