Sexual Harassment Training and Tracking: A Crucial Step Towards a Safer Workplace

Despite a public demand for increased accountability, sexual harassment continues to happen in the workplace. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported a 13.6 percent increase in sexual harassment complaints in 2018 over the previous year. Between FY 2018 and FY 2021, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received over 98,000 charges alleging harassment under any basis and over 27,000 charges alleging sexual harassment.

There’s a dire need for better sexual harassment tracking. Sexual harassment is notoriously under-documented, with up to 20 percent of workers who experience sexual harassment and assault reporting it, one in five women too afraid to make a complaint, and nearly one in four women fearing being fired for speaking up post-incident.  

One in two transgender individuals will face sexual abuse or assault at some point and nearly one in four men will experience sexual violence during their lifetime. 

To Address Workplace Sexual Harassment, Organizations Must Track and Train  

Offering incident tracking along with anti-harassment training in combination has proven to be an effective sexual harassment workplace solution. A comprehensive, multifaceted approach is essential for proactively addressing harassment and building a respectful workplace. 

To effectively combat sexual harassment, organizations must create an ethical culture supported by robust anti-harassment policies and engaging training. This involves instilling appropriate behaviors through clear policies, maintaining employee awareness with regular training and reminders, and training managers to handle harassment reports confidentially and without retaliation.
