What Managers Need To Know About Harassment

Training buyers must think carefully about learning styles and cultures in their organisations before distributing this resource.
I have no reservations about the quality of the information, which takes a sensible and measured approach to dealing with a complex issue. But I prefer dramatisation to promote understanding of a subject like this because it helps managers to assess the impact of such behaviour and so engage with the material.
For example, the CD-Rom features a difficult case study of a young female worker complaining about an established middle aged man.
We are led through all the options facing the manager charged with sorting out this mess, but I really longed to get into the story, watch the emotions involved and have key learning points flashed up on the screen in front of me. Instead a very calm, Des Lynam-sound-alike explains all the available routes.
However, the other interactive elements win full marks. The quizzes and games at the end highlight learning points.
With careful management and reinforcement activities, this could be a useful resource.
