The Leader's Message
In our training program, we have built in a space for you to include a custom, video-recorded welcome message. The welcome message will set the tone and expectations from the highest levels of the organization. This message could be formal or informal depending on your culture, but it is vital for learners to appreciate how important it is that they absorb the information presented. You should aim for a message that is no more than two to three minutes in length. We invite you to create a message of your own or use some of the sample language we provide below:
One of my first priorities is that we maintain a great culture at OUR ORGANIZATION. When the vapors of harassment are present, good culture cannot thrive. Our good culture supports your wellness as an employee, helps us do our jobs the best we can, and ensures we maintain the highest levels of customer satisfaction. On the other hand, workplaces with harassment have higher health incidents, higher turnover, and higher absenteeism. And that is not good enough for any of you, and it is not good enough for any of our clients. Said differently, the ROI on our good culture is high, precisely because we are empowered to bring our full selves to work and contribute to our communities. In recent decades, harassment, discrimination, and bullying have become more sophisticated. This training will step you through the legislative history of illegal workplace behavior and teach you to understand the difference between uncomfortable situations and illegal behavior. It will explain the firm's expectations for reporting, and lay out the proper reaction to observing others enduring harassment. This is not social justice training. It explains a piece of your job duties. This training is academic, but it also grounds the education in our firm's mission and values by using scenarios that could conceivably occur in our firm. It's my hope that this training teaches you something, causes you to ponder the risks of harassment sneaking into our company, and helps you appreciate the benefits of our harassment-free culture.
These topics are important to me, and I want every single one of you to be intolerant of harassment in our company. Thank you for attending this class with me.

feedback along the way.
