We updated our flagship course and you're gonna love it!

Creating a respectful workplace is more important for employers now than ever. Employers have a greater responsibility to take steps to prevent harassment and many are failing to create effective prevention plans.

In fact, the EEOC task force reported in June that corporate harassment training has generally not changed workforce behavior due to the “check-the-box” nature of most programs.

Our New Preventing Workplace Harassment Course

With relevant video learning inspired by current events and client situations, new social interactions, and continuous learning, our course is anything but a check-the-box solution.

Check out the innovative additions to our PWH program that better reflect and better resolve workplace issues, and help create a true learning community.

Expert-Curated Coursework and Learner Q&A

Our new course was created in partnership with subject matter experts who both wrote and enforced harassment training laws.

Experts include Patti Perez, Council member of the California Fair Employment and Housing Council (FEHC), which issued new AB 1825 regulations on sexual harassment training, and Phyllis Cheng, former Director of the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), which enforces anti-harassment laws and partners with the EEOC.

In addition to writing the course, our experts respond to learner questions asked during the course. When your learners have a question about the content of the course, they can directly email our experts to receive guidance about common workplace issues.

New Video Content

Our new video scenes were inspired by real workplace events that address the nuances of gender, race, age, religion, and sexual orientation in the workplace. Click here to preview our new workplace scenes inspired by the Ellen Pao trial, the black lives matter movement, and other current events.

New Social Media-Inspired Interactions

All of our learner questions and interactions have a new social component to them. And with introduction of perception polling, when a learner makes an assessment during the course, they will be able to see how their co-workers answered the same questions.

These social interactions encourage a dialog with your employees and prevent them from feeling like training happens in a vacuum.

Actionable Data and Business Analytics

Embedded within courses is the ability to capture actionable data and business analytics which helps identify and track areas of workplace improvement. The data can help you target the issues or business sectors that need further communication.

Continuous Learning Capability

With our PWH course, education doesn’t have to end after the course has been completed. Expand your current program with our new micro learning solution, 3 Minute Video Lesson (3MVL). You can easily create and send targeted messages to a hot spot or as a periodic refresher.
