Cost-Effective, Customized Training

The definitive training system, Shared Learning is the most convenient way for companies to train employees and supervisors. Since Shared Learning is web-based, it can be accessed any time from anywhere a user has browser capabilities. It can even be installed on your organization’s own Intranet.

Taken at the user’s desktop, Shared Learning training also reduces classroom time and allows flexibility in the choice of training environment. And, with lessons that are self-paced, users can learn at their own speed.

With Shared Learning on the Internet, employers can also customize both the content and web interface to ensure the training hits home with employees. Training content can be created to match your work environment, including a personal introductory message from your organization’s leader to ensure that employees understand there’s commitment from the top for a respectful workplace.

Shared Learning Overview

The Shared Learning series presents modules for both employees and supervisors. The hands-on interactive training uses a series of explanations, examples, scenarios and frequently asked questions to teach key points in an engaging manner as users learn about sexual harassment.

On the Internet or corporate Intranet, as well as on a stand-alone CD-ROM, Shared Learning uses the power of interactive technology to blend expert commentary, real-life scenarios and interactive Q&A into an engaging learning experience.

An administration module tracks the progress of all users and generates documentation reports that capture information such as employee name, department and date of training completion.

Upon finishing the training, everyone will understand why it is important to know about sexual harassment, be able to recognize what it is and what it is not, know what actions to avoid and, if they are supervisors, know how to respond effectively to a sexual harassment complaint.
