Sensitivity in the Workplace

Workplace sensitivity training covers legal workplace protections that all employees need to be aware of. It is essential to provide employees with sensitivity training to prevent discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Workplace discrimination and harassment can also affect employee productivity, and it can divert resources from the organization's real business. Improper conduct can also lead to liability for the organization and/or individual employees. The U.S. Supreme Court has established legal standards that employers must meet to avoid — or at least minimize — discrimination and harassment and avoid liability for punitive damages. These online Sensitivity Training courses include our Workplace Diversity training course, Workplace Bullying training course, and our Preventing Discrimination and Harassment training course.

Federal laws protect employees from workplace discrimination and harassment on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, national origin, disability, pregnancy, and genetic information. Some state and local laws protect even more characteristics, making sensitivity and cultural sensitivity training in the workplace even more imperative.

This Workplace Sensitivity course emphasizes the importance of treating everyone with respect and dignity, and demonstrates how embracing diversity can be a sound business strategy.
