Beyond Compliance: Creating an Anti-Harassment Workplace

Most harassment trainings are only designed with compliance in mind — they’re designed to teach would-be harassers how to avoid engaging in unlawful sexual harassment at work. But what about more nuanced situations that may not be illegal, but are still wrong? And what about bystanders? Or people who have already experienced harassment? Although 60% of people in the U.S. have experienced harassment, most trainings don’t even consider these audiences.

Paradigm has reimagined sexual harassment prevention training with inclusion at its core. Our harassment prevention training goes above and beyond what is required in California, helping you create an anti-harassment environment while furthering your diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.

How Paradigm’s Harassment Training is Different From Others

The world has changed — has your sexual harassment training kept up? With Paradigm’s online training suite, you can help prevent sexual harassment in the workplace, reduce other forms of workplace discrimination, and further your commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Engage Learners with Modern, Progressive Content

Our interactive content is designed with inclusion in mind, using scenarios and videos designed to address even subtle forms of harassment.

Eliminate Confusion on What is Considered Sexual Harassment

We help learners understand the legal landscape while also promoting an environment where all problematic behavior, even if it’s technically “legal,” is taken seriously.

Avoid Triggering, Awkward Sexual Harassment Videos

Our training takes a trauma-informed approach, and considers that some learners have already experienced harassment. Our nuanced scenarios don’t require learners to watch people reenact potentially traumatic events in order to absorb key lessons.

Equip Learners to Respond to Harassment

In foundational courses for non-managers and supervisors and bystander intervention training, we help learners understand variousways of reporting and interrupting sexual harassment and seeking care if they experience or witness it.

Provide Supervisors with Additional Knowledge

Our harassment training has an additional course for supervisors. It covers their role in fostering inclusive workplaces and their unique responsibilities around sexual harassment complaints.

Access a Robust Library of DEI Content

In addition to harassment training, organizations can access additional content to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. Other training topics include unconscious bias, allyship, inclusive hiring, microaggressions, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sexual Harassment Training
What does SB143 mean for employers?
State bill 143 requires all California employers with more than 5 employees to provide 1 hour of sexual harassment prevention training to individual contributors, and 2 hours to managers, at least once every two years.
Do employers need to train independent contractors, volunteers, or unpaid interns in the state of California?
For new hires, employers are required to provide sexual harassment prevention training within 30 days of the hire date or 100 hours worked, whichever comes first. Employees who work for less than this time are not required to have training, but it’s still reccomended.
What documentation is required for those who have completed training?
During sexual harassment prevention training, attendees must sign in, provide their name, and date of training, then share a copy of their completion certificate provided by the instructor. In addition, the employer must provide the type of training, a copy of all materials used during the training, and the name of the instructor. These documents must be kept for at least 2 years.
What is “effective interactive training” and why is it necessary for compliance to sexual harassment prevention?
For sexual harassment prevention training to be considered “effective,” it must be performed either in-person, live-streamed, online or pre-recorded with the curriculum of a qualified instructor in a setting that is different from employees’ normal environment.
If I have employees located outside of California, are they required to be trained?
Different States have different compliance requirements, and California has some of the most stringent laws. However, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recommends sexual harassment prevention for all employees, regardless of their location. If you need help understanding how your organization can meet compliance needs, we’d love to connect.
