Creating a Respectful Workplace: Sexual Harassment Education for HR

 

Program Overview:

As Human Resources professionals, we are tasked with providing workplaces free of harassment, but in today’s overexposed and subjective world, this is a tough job.  Media and entertainment send mixed messages about what’s socially acceptable and what crosses the line to inappropriate, harassment, discrimination and even assault. When "innocent" joking or flirting start, it can easily evolve into behavior that crosses the line. 

Learn how to effectively establish respect as the foundation of your culture and ways of working by teaching everyone what it is and what it isn’t, how the lines get blurred and how to address it.  

This course will check the legal and compliance boxes by teaching people what not to do, but it will also deliver a philosophy and practice of accountability in creating a rich culture that breeds respect and camaraderie. Build awareness, skills and an environment where people thrive while protecting your business and everyone in it.   


Program Facilitator:

Ann Hargraves, SPHR., Principal, Mindset Consulting LLC

Ann Hargraves is a strategic consultant for businesses that strive to leverage the power of their team and talent to achieve growth and financial success. With extensive experience in rapid growth companies going through acquisitions and prosperous sales, she’s an expert in scaling for efficiency and high performance with a keen eye for long term operational sustainability.

She was the Human Resources Director for Kettle Cuisine, manufacturer of handcrafted, small batch, all-natural soups. She built the HR function and processes to assimilate the team with its recent new ownership and readied the company for its next sale a year and a half later.  Keeping the manufacturing company union free and continuing to drive growth and value was a result of a clearly defined culture poised for its acquisition of two additional facilities within a year.  Ann was a key member of the acquisition team and led the shutdown of a facility in Florida while maintaining production and output throughout the process. 

Prior to Kettle Cuisine, Ann was the Human Resources Director for the Keurig Business Unit of GMCR reporting to the President. She designed compensation and benefit programs, learning and development programs, workforce planning, succession planning, employee relations, talent acquisition and talent management, while guiding the business through a merger with GMCR and successive reorganizations of the business. A major focus was working to maintain a strong, rich culture that created a best in class organization and preserved the values as the business grew.  During her tenure, the business was consistently recognized by The Great Place to Work Institute and The Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work as an example of best in class programs and engagement.  

After getting her start in the hospitality industry, Ann transitioned into a leadership role as an operations VP for a privately held publishing company handling production, distribution, HR, finance and call centers. 

With a strong belief and genuine interest in behavior and motivation, Ann puts emphasis on employee engagement and communication as well as leadership qualities present in all employees. 

Ann is a public speaker and volunteers her time to non-profit organizations to promote development and financial security to women and families, as well as cancer research and treatment.

Ann received her BS in psychology from Salem State and is an SPHR.
