Anti-Harassment in the Workplace

Harassment in the workplace is a serious issue that requires a thorough understanding to promote awareness and ultimately prevention. Improper behavior in the workplace may have significant consequences for those involved, for yourself as an employee, and your employer. Recognizing the various types of harassment will help you to identify potential warning signs and take the necessary steps to report harassment.

Violence in the Workplace

This one-hour course focuses on the prevention and what to do in the event of workplace violence. Additionally, the Violence in the Workplace eLearning course serves as a helpful tool to identify potential warning signs.

Family and Medical Leave Act

In previous eras, people often became caught in an "either/or" situation because employers were not always cooperative when individuals needed time for personal matters. Employees ran the risk of losing their jobs and benefits if they made the choice of putting their family first. Fortunately, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees to take the time they need to handle life events. We will go over the FMLA in detail to help you understand the basic provisions and how the FMLA can benefit you.

Shaping an Ethical Workplace Culture

Workers create an organization's culture of credibility, integrity, and excellence. When a group of employees honors an environment of ethical principles and foundation, the organization benefits from the culture. The instructional goal of Ethics in the Workplace is to highlight the importance of ethical behavior choice, examine ethical decision-making, and discover consequences of individual ethical attitudes on the organization as a whole.

Successful Customer Interactions

There is a strong correlation between customer satisfaction and the success of a business or department. Welcoming customers means working to create satisfied customers from the inside-out. When local government creates satisfied customers, we create empowered and informed citizens. In this course, learners will discover how to interact as co-workers and service providers. We will also cover understanding the customer goal and how to create goals that will lead to successful customer interactions.
