Prevention of Sexual/Racial Harassment:
 
Promoting Trust In The Work Place
 
The EEOC requires organizations do three things to avoid harassment:  Have a policy, train, and enforce the policy. This course enables the organization to take the required steps and promote the development of wholesome relationships at work WITHOUT promoting fear or polarizing the sexes/races.  In this course, managers will learn their responsibilities to ensure that all team members know that harassment will not be tolerated and the consequences to the organization if harassment issues are not dealt with quickly.  Employees are reminded that EVERYONE is responsible for promoting a harassment-free atmosphere at work.
 
This training may be  tailored to include the organization’s issues.
 
Participants will receive training to:
 
  •  Define the organization's policy on harassment. 
  •  Determine what behavior can be construed as harassment.
  •  Review the current legal guidelines. 
  •  Determine the managers' responsibility to protect the employees, the organization, and themselves from harassment charges.
  •  Recognize responsibilities to communicate and promote a harassment-free atmosphere.   
  •  Determine what steps to take to deal with harassment. 
  •  Determine personal responsibility for awareness, accountability, and action 
 
Course Requirements:
 
  •  Length of Course: 4.0 hours (depending on how much class discussion is generated from the participant, the module may be longer)  Includes meeting with management after training to cover their responsibilities in this area.
  •  Number of Participants: Large groups are not a problem.  
  •  Materials:  
      •  Master handout is furnished to the client.  One copy should be photocopied for each participant. 
      •  Client should attach the organization's policy to the handout and provide a master role for each participant to sign. If client does not have a policy, Lovoy's Team Works, Inc. will be happy to provide a sample policy that the organization and its legal counsel may tailor to meet the organization's needs.

Diversity Is Value-Able
 
In the current economic conditions, no organization can afford to ignore issues that may be keeping it from reaching full productivity and maintaining relevance in the changing global economy. This module is based on the principles of Awareness, Accountability, and Action. 
 
Individuals are challenged to examine preconceived ideas of others to determine the value of those ideas.  The group examines stereotyping or "victim mentality" as ways to avoid taking responsibility for their actions.  They commit to positive action plans that will empower them to stop actions that have a negative impact on their ability to relate to each other and their customers.
 
This training can be tailored to include the organization’s issues. 
 
Participants will receive training to:
 
  •  Determine how Awareness, Accountability and Action contribute to personal responsibility
  •  Identify the impact of stereotyping or engaging in the "victim mentality"
  •  Develop action plans to stop discriminatory behaviors and contribute to a healthy environment that will keep the organization productive and profitable.
 
Course Requirements:
 
  •  Length of Course: 4.0 hours (depending on what issues are included by the client and how much class discussion is generated from the participant, the module may be longer) 
  •  Number of Participants: The larger the group, the richer the discussion. 
  •  Materials:  
      •  Master handout is furnished to the client.  One copy should be photocopied for each participant.
      •  If applicable, client should attach the organization's policy to the handout and provide a master role for each participant to sign. If client does not have a policy, Lovoy's Team Works, Inc. will be happy to provide a sample policy that the organization and its legal counsel may tailor to meet the organization's needs.
