Organizations & Companies

Unfortunately, sexual harassment in the workplace is still a very frequent occurrence. What can employers do to combat it and how are they required to respond?

 

We explore the situation with you, analyze which structures and measures already exist, and which further ones make sense and are necessary to enable equal, respectful and legally binding work with each other. Our speakers are trained / licensed by the Federal Association of Women’s Counseling Centers and Women’s Emergency Hotline bff Gewalt-gegen-Frauen.de.

What is the current situation, what goals do we have?
  • What already exists, what should be created? Guidelines for action, code of conduct, works council agreement, workplace policy.

  • What is the company language regarding sexual harassment in the workplace, how is it communicated internally?

  • What committees, contact persons are there? Who is responsible: Equal Opportunity Commissioner (BfC), Equal Opportunity Officer, Human Resources? Should an action chart be established? ...

  • Is there a training concept, what does it look like?

  • Are there current cases? -> separate case supervision

Based on your structures, we create a project matrix for establishing new paths from A for action guidelines, C for contact persons, and R for responsibilities.

Evaluatin

We evaluate all our training courses in written form. In the case of support and advice for companies against sexual harassment in the workplace, a personal evaluation meeting is also offered.

 

We know how important it is for employees when their employer addresses the issue and takes a new approach. They feel taken seriously, a positive, benevolent corporate culture is underlined, which promotes the working atmosphere.

 

What prevents organizations and companies from complying with legally required measures (according to AGG)?

 

The fear that addressing the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace is tantamount to confession.

 

Our approach is to approach the issue progressively. Prevention is always a better investment than litigation costs. Prevent sexual harassment in the workplace as much as is within your means. We support and accompany you in this, so that you protect your employees preventively in the best possible way.
