The #MeToo movement is unavoidable. While most companies have policies that purport to prohibit sexual harassment, clearly employees throughout every industry and economic level did not feel comfortable complaining. This is where HR can do more to step in to resolve these issues. A recurring question throughout the national media coverage and outrage is: "how could this have happened, and where was human resources?" This session will cover common themes that have emerged as breakdowns in the HR process that lead to such allegations, how to investigate sexual harassment allegations, and effective policies should be in place to avoid harassment allegations, and create a culture of inclusiveness in the workplace.
