Harassment prevention training is incredibly important for at least two reasons:
• It communicates to your employees that your company takes these matters seriously
• It can be a key piece of a defense to any potential claim
The most important step companies can take to prevent these occurrences from happening is to implement an effective policy, communicate that policy to all employees, train employees on how to bring concerns to the company’s attention, and then take prompt and decisive action when the inevitable problem arises.
