Sexual Harassment For Employees
There’s no place for it
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a very real problem. Sexual harassment damages employees and companies. It can result in loss of productivity, poor performance, disruptive work environments, and loss of good employees and managers. Sexual harassment is against the law. Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination.
Sexual harassment is a crime that creates a whole host of problems in the workplace. First, no one should have to work with the fear of being subjected to unwanted advances from colleagues.

Liability is high in sexual harassment situations, so there is good reason to take every measure possible to deter sexual harassment behaviors.
What constitutes a hostile work environment? Some employees believe that a bad boss, an unpleasant work environment, a rude coworker, or the lack of perks, privileges, benefits, and recognition can create a hostile work environment. But, the reality is that for a workplace to be hostile, certain legal criteria must be met.
A hostile work environment is created by a boss or coworker whose actions, communication, or behavior make doing your job impossible. This means that the behavior altered the terms, conditions, and/or reasonable expectations of a comfortable work environment for employees. Additionally, the behavior, actions or communication must be discriminatory in nature.
What Is Depression?
Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad. But these feelings are usually short-lived and pass within a couple of days. When you have depression, it interferes with daily life and causes pain for both you and those who care about you. Depression is a common but serious illness.
Many people with a depressive illness never seek treatment. But the majority, even those with the most severe depression, can get better with treatment. Medications, psychotherapies, and other methods can effectively treat people with depression.
Team building is the process of deliberately creating an effective team by focusing on those factors
that support (or block) team performance. Common team building activities focus on clarifying roles
and goals; building trust, accountability and commitment; improving or designing processes;
supporting the use of healthy team norms to encourage effective communication and conflict
resolution; and focusing on leadership behaviors. Often, a team-building event will focus on more than
one aspect of team-building.
