Professionalism in an organization
Syntiro has devised a 2-hour online course that will help managers or supervisors of any organization to orient their employees about the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. This training is intended to inform and to prevent occurrences such as sexual harassment from manifesting in a professional setting. Also, this would aid managers to learn about their moral and legal responsibility in maintaining integrity and professionalism in an organization.
Based on the content and presentation, the Sexual Harassment Prevention for Managers training is an effective tool in complying with AB 1825. In terms of strengths, the training has many positive points. First, the course outline is well defined. It was able to cover the definition, types, solution and prevention of sexual harassment. Second, the discussion of the various subject matters was very easy to comprehend.
In very section of the training, a topic will be explained briefly then it will be related to real life incidents. There are interactive sections such as the Truth or Myth segment wherein readers will be asked if the given situation is an example of a sexual harassment and a corresponding explanation will be shown once the reader have chosen his or her answer. Also, in every section there are “spot checks. ” These are series of questions that will test if the readers have understood or learned something from the discussion.
Third positive feature of this training is that even though it is a self-study training, the managers or supervisors have the option to ask the author about their queries to further facilitate their deeper understanding of sexual harassment. However, the only drawback for this online training is the fact that there is no personal contact between the trainer and the trainee which could make the training more interactive. Despite this, the training is still a practical choice because it is convenient, accessible and effective in educating about the controversial issue of sexual harassment.
