PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 5, 2018--Leading ethics and compliance software and services company, NAVEX Global ® today announced availability of a free online awareness and training video series designed to help organizations focus on preventing sexual harassment and effecting positive changes in workplace culture.

“Sexual harassment is not just a compliance issue. It is a workplace culture issue that is unacceptable, toxic and puts the entire organization at risk,” said Bob Conlin, NAVEX Global President and CEO. “While harassment training has been around for years, there is clear evidence that many employers lack the tools and experience needed to address this issue from the top, at the board and executive level, to drive cultural change. As the industry leader, we recognize our obligation to take a stand against this egregious behavior, and we want to help as many organizations as possible do the same,” added Conlin.

In this spirit, NAVEX Global has created a three-part series of anti-sexual harassment awareness and training videos available free of charge, with no restrictions on usage. The videos showcase the company’s recognized expertise in designing and developing highly effective and engaging training that drives behaviour and culture change.

“Sexual harassment persists when leadership fails to hold people accountable for their bad behavior, and when bystanders fail to intervene,” said Shanti Atkins, NAVEX Global founder and member of its board of directors. “NAVEX Global is uniquely qualified to provide tools and guidance to help make this intervention effective,” added Atkins.

The three-part video series announced today is the latest installment in NAVEX Global’s ongoing You Can’t Delegate Ethics (YCDE) campaign which launched earlier this year. Overall the campaign posits that systemic change on the issue of sexual harassment will occur only when leadership, at all levels of an organization, takes responsibility for creating workplaces where the culture is “hostile to harassment.” Other components in the YCDE toolkit include:

Two-part eBook with insightful guidance from industry experts on sexual harassment detection and prevention; Sample anti-sexual harassment policy for use by organizations without one; Recorded Ethics and Compliance Virtual Conference (ECVC) Master Class© webinar: Defining and Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Modern Workplace; and A discussion group for this topic on Compliance Next.

All YCDE assets are available free of charge on the company’s You Can’t Delegate Ethics web page or at www.compliancenext.com.
