Business Ethics Alliance to Hold Workshop on Responding to Sexual Harassment
The Business Ethics Alliance® (www.businessethicsalliance.org) is excited to announce a new workshop on Wednesday, February 6 from 7:30–9 a.m. Held at Creighton University’s Mike and Josie Harper Center, and in partnership with SCORE Omaha, this workshop will help small business owners learn strategies for intervention and practical tools for when they are an organization’s only resource.
For any organization, large or small, sexual harassment needs to be considered a significant threat not only to the bottom line but also to organizational culture. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recovered nearly $165 million for employees who made harassment claims in 2015. Whether allegations are made or not, a culture of harassment causes low morale, increased turnover, and serious harm to organizational reputation.
For only $25, small business owners can learn how to become an effective “first responder” despite the limitations of resources in their business. By encouraging employees to speak up and knowing how to respond to their claims, business owners set the tone for a culture of respect, openness, and unconditional willingness to listen. More information and registration can be found at businessethicsalliance.org/events.
In partnership with the Omaha business community, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, the Better Business Bureau and Creighton University Heider College of Business, the Business Ethics Alliance® is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit dedicated to city-level business ethics education.
