Designing Harassment Prevention That Really Works

For over 50 years, organizations have been implementing policies and procedures, conducting training, and imposing discipline for workplace harassment and discrimination. Yet each day we open the newspaper to see more issues arising—at multiple companies across multiple industries.

Combining a comprehensive study of employment practices with academic research on human behavior, Dominick uncovers what really prevents harassment in the workplace (and what does not) and authoritatively lays out how it must be addressed by leaders and HR professionals serious about stopping it.

There is no silver bullet to prevent and correct harassment, and this book presents a multifaceted and proactive approach that:

  • examines leadership behavior critical to promoting a culture of respect and establishing appropriate policies and behavior expectations;
  • supports a culture of respect with effective training, funding, reinforcement, modeling, investigative resources, and corrective and post-incident actions.

Only when an organization and its leadership are truly committed to proactively leading—by creating and inspiring a culture of respect within the workplace—will prevention and correction techniques have real impact.
