The Failure of Workplace Sexual Harassment Training

August 22nd, 2018

Philadelphia sexual harassment lawyers show the possible failure of harassment training.The wave of sexual harassment charges has created a far-reaching ripple in other industries. From government agencies to Fortune 500 companies and beyond, many industries are reconsidering their sexual harassment training policies and procedures. Although there may have been an uptick in sexual harassment training by some corporations, there are many who doubt that it will be successful. The following are a few reasons why:

  • The use of consequences to instill fear. Using threats to frighten employees will not work because it does not offer enlightenment. If they do not understand what they are doing, nothing will change.
  • Focusing on the negative. When employee training focuses only on bad behaviors, it does not educate employees on what good behavior looks like, which is essential for creating an environment where employees are friendly and respectful.
  • Blame. An atmosphere of blame can create an environment filled with animosity. If people believe they are being blamed, they may be resentful, be less likely to have a positive attitude, and are more likely to feel defensive.
  • A strictly legal approach. When the focus is only on what constitutes legal and illegal behavior, the nuances of inappropriate behaviors may not be properly understood, which does not provide a complete understanding.
