Creating a Culture of Respect: HR Risk Management Strategies


Unlike other forms of discrimination, harassment is typically cumulative in nature. One offensive remark will seldom be illegal, but can become illegal if similar incidents are allowed to recur.

Women and men often perceive differently where the line is drawn between welcome and unwelcome comments about appearance and social invitations at work. These subtle types of unwelcome behavior are often difficult to recognize because the recipient frequently does not complain and harassers often do not recognize when their behavior is unwelcome.

Although unwelcome behaviors can be more subtle than allegations we hear or read about in the news, they are still harmful. Their impacts include discomfort, embarrassment, anxiousness, stress, anger, and feeling stalked. Sometimes the harassed employee will take deliberate actions to avoid the harasser by avoiding work areas, changing work schedule, and not staying late or arriving early.

Join Patti Massey and Kelly Kramer, from MYCA Learning, as they discuss the following:

  • What is sexual harassment – How to recognize it if it is happening to you or someone you work with.
  • How to stop it – Once you learn how to recognize what harassment is, we will look at practical ways to prevent or stop it.
  • How to report it – While every organization has different procedures for reporting harassment, we will discuss how and when to report.
  • How to respond – If you are a supervisor, it is important to know how to respond to any complaints to maintain a safe work environment.
