Today’s workforce is a complex mixture of individuals with different cultural, religious, economic and social perspectives. Traditional corporate philosophy recognized the synergy between profitability and productivity. Modern thought refined this understanding to underscore that productivity and profitability increase when employees feel valued and respected. Fair employment practices (“FEP”) training is imperative to every employee’s perception about his/her worth to an organization. Employees who feel valued and understand the differences between appropriate conduct and improper behavior are less likely to file EEO claims, and managers are better equipped to prevent or correct potential problems. Training also helps insulate employers from various liabilities associated with EEO claims.
Philosophy and Methodology
There are four ways in which individuals learn: visually, audibly, analytically, and emotionally. However, no two people learn exactly the same way. Bashen recognizes that all learning styles must be addressed to ensure the success of all participants; therefore, we have created a novel training experience that blends several techniques to deliver key information. Bashen’s interactive training courses utilize live oration, videos, role-playing, group projects, activity worksheets, with questions and answers to create a positive educational environment. Courses may also be delivered via the Internet, Intranet training or satellite broadcast. Bashen’s web-based training incorporates state of the art e-learning and instructional designs using illustrative workplace documents, polling and interactivity. The result is a highly effective and convenient method of delivering engaging and customized e-learning.
Bashen employs a variety of customizable training modules in all areas of EEO, including diversity, fair employment practices, anti-harassment and discrimination prevention, and conducting effective EEO investigations. Bashen facilitators work closely with the clients to craft a training program that is designed to meet an organization’s specified goals and needs. Courses may be intensified or simplified, depending on the audience.
Bashen’s training curricula are designed to help foster productive work environments that are free of discrimination and harassment. The training modules incorporate the latest cases and employment laws, and create both consensus and understanding among management and employees regarding appropriate workplace conduct to measurably improve the knowledge and interactions of employees at every level. Supervisors and managers gain the necessary awareness to avoid the potential perils associated with improper conduct. Our trainers are also EEO investigators, which greatly enhances their ability to impart pertinent knowledge about tolerance, inclusion, and fair employment practices.
