    About this course


    Sexual and Workplace Harassment training is a pervasive problem in the business world.  Employers are forced to offer - and employees are forced to sit through – training sessions that are important and necessary and yet also mind-numbingly boring.

    This course is different! Built by a team of millennials, using the latest research on engaging course design as well as professional videography and content, Awkward at the Office uses a combination of story vignettes, motion graphics, and Bigger Brains’ award-winning Teacher/Learner style to effectively convey this important topic.

    In 18 vignettes across 6 video modules, students will follow the stories of Adeela, Jason, Lisa, and Michael as they deal with both the major and minor effects of workplace harassment, and demonstrate real world responses to situations ranging from inappropriate comments to gender and racial differences to full quid pro quo sexual harassment.   We’ll see how workplace harassment affects not just the people involved, but the productivity of the company as a whole.

    Workplace harassment might be sexual, or based on cultural or other differences, but the effects are the same: it destroys trust, creates tension, saps productivity, and can lead to legal action as well.  In between vignettes our experts Jacki Flynn and Jeremy Pickens will teach how to identify, resolve, and report workplace harassment.
