Sexual Harassment Positive Duty

How is AWPTI Respect in the Workplace & Sexual Harassment Training 2023 and beyond different?

The courses have been designed and developed and are facilitated by Phil O’Brien, (more details here) a highly skilled and experienced workplace investigator and trainer.  The advantages of having Phil deliver the program for you are;

  • The program is definitely NOT death by PowerPoint.
  • Your participants are able to hear about real life sexual harassment complaints and investigations rather then someone with no real world experience just reading off the script.
  • The sessions are highly engaging with many ‘real world stories’.
  • With case studies and examples for discussions, Q&As and pop quizzes to see what people think what behaviours such as bullying and sexual harassment are
  • Your participants are able to ask questions and get answers relating to real life sexual harassment complaints and investigations.
  • We have found that listening to the real life examples and being able to engage and ask questions makes the sessions more enjoyable and very interesting.
  • Based on the feedback we have received, the sessions are engaging and entertaining.

This program is part of our Live by Request series that can be provided at a  time/date and location to suit your needs.  The program can be presented in person or remotely via Zoom or MS Teams.

The programs have been developed as a result of  Phil having to investigate 100s of complaints of misconduct including bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, fraud, theft, misuse of resources including IT and email and many more.  The training is not just theoretical, it is based on actually incidents, complaints and issues experienced.
