Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Are you Ready for the Conversation?
Dates(s) - 12/12/2017 - 12/12/2017 08:00 - 11:00
Wyboston Lakes Resort, Great North Road , Wyboston, MK44 3AL

Polling by Opinium Research revealed 14% of people in the UK have experienced sexual harassment at work. With over a quarter of women stating they have been victims of sexism at work and 58% of these women not reporting these incidents to the organisation, do your policies need to clearer and more well-known? The topic of sexual harassment is often taboo in the workplace, but with the Film world leading the war on sexual harassment we wanted to explore the rights and processes that need to be understood by employers.

The ONE Group has teamed up with Buckles Solicitors LLP to offer a FREE breakfast discussion at Wyboston Lakes on the 12th December 2017. With Christmas being the time of social events between colleagues we want to arm employers with the necessary information to best approach this situation should it arise.
