A: I’m an advocate for the actual training sessions because most people don’t fully read policy handbooks and over the years they may forget about the written sexual harassment policy. So, by refreshing employees’ minds every few years, it reflects positively on companies/agencies because it shows that this topic is important to the organization. Also, companies would have less of an issue in the courts and with financial costs because there would be proof of their efforts to prevent sexual harassment. I even recommend sending out e-mails or hard copies of the policy to employees on a regular basis, especially if you have not conducted training sessions.
