New for 2018, Studer Community Institute training and development brings you the first in its Lunch and Learn Series. These sessions will be in addition to our regular workshop offerings. Each Lunch and Learn will provide an information-packed session. Lunch will be included in the cost of registration and seating is limited.
Lunch and Learns are cost-effective way for managers and staff to get more training by making the lunch hour multi-functional.
The biggest benefit is that you are able to get more training delivered to you and your employees quickly and easily at minimal cost.
The first seminar offers attendees information on harassment, including sexual harassment, as well as more ambiguous forms of potential harassment like bullying. Attendees can expect to gain an understanding on how to recognize harassing behaviors and avoid them, identify the difference between sexual harassment and discrimination, distinguish the boundaries between work and social environments, improve the proficiency of employees who handle harassment complaints, and begin the investigation process.
