2017 Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” is the Silence Breakers. In this “Me Too” year of awareness on sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace, employers need to understand how this landscape is evolving and how to respond proactively. While sexual harassment in the workplace is not new, traditional reactive approaches and policies are no longer optimal. Combined with the power of social media and trending news, poorly handled complaints and outdated policies can negatively affect your business reputation, your working environment and, ultimately, your bottom line.
Bond’s Breakfast Briefing will cover:
- Proactive vs. reactive approaches
- Immediate and long-term initiatives to consider
- Strategic assignment of roles in handling sexual harassment complaints
- Communication strategies for managing publicity
- Resources available
- Proactive training recommendations
- Legal strategies and defenses
Join us for this timely and important Breakfast Briefing offered across New York State.
