Sexual Harassment Awareness Certification
A recent study of UK workplaces found that over 50% of all women have been sexually harassed at some point in their careers. Numbers like these paint an unpleasant image of workplaces across the country. Sexual harassment at work can lead to several negative consequences, including low productivity, loss of interest in work and even the development of depression and anxiety. Understanding your role as an employee in preventing sexual harassment at work always leads to healthier working environments.
