2017 was a year of unprecedented scandal and embarrassment for top leaders in virtually every field of endeavor. Accusations of untoward behavior rocked the country and produced a powerful movement that placed a spotlight on some of America's ugliest workplace secrets. Bad behavior among an organization’s most powerful ranks will result in public scrutiny, loss of talent and ultimately impact to the bottom line.
As trusted advisers and culture stewards, HR professionals play an integral role in ensuring respect and accountability in the workplace. If there was ever a time for HR to demonstrate its value-add, it is now. This session will provide HR leaders with strategies to: confront troubling behaviors and engage in dialogue with C-Suite leaders about personal brand pit falls and preventable blunders; re-tool the HR "playbook" to effectively respond to allegations of sexual harassment and other troubling behaviors in the age of social media; articulate the business case for robust sexual harassment and personal brand management training within health care organizations.
- Tackle tough conversations and act as an interrupter to troubling behaviors.
- Articulate the business case for funding sexual harassment and civility training in your organization.
- Retool the HR “playbook” to focus prevention and civility in the workplace.
