A sequence of original stories conveys important training points as seen through the eyes of the participants.
Instead of explanations from an on-screen narrator, first-hand reporting keeps the action moving and makes it personal. This helps viewers internalize the content and retain lasting impressions that stay with them long after the training is over.
Who Is It For?
This training is directed to managers, supervisors, and "lead employees" who have the authority to control certain aspects of the jobs or working conditions of their fellow employees.
What You Will Learn?
You will see the consequences and potential harm caused by hostile environment and quid pro quo harassment. You will also learn about protected characteristics, third-party harassment, retaliation, and other forms of abusive behavior. And while sexual and other forms of illegal harassment are covered, our focus is on respect and consideration for others. These scenarios are meant to prevent unwelcome behavior BEFORE it escalates out of control.
Filmed on location, realistic characters interact in seven dramatic stories:
