NAVEX Global’s Workplace Harassment Annual Refresher is designed to support employers in New York who have an annual training obligation. It does this by offering learners content that aligns to training specifications in New York and New York City – and presenting it alongside new video scenarios, fresh animations and engaging interactives. The course can be used alone each year, or used in alternating years with Workplace Harassment.

Workplace Harassment Annual Refresher aims to provide learners with the essentials for understanding, preventing and responding to harassment. Coverage includes: key definitions, prevention best practices, bystander intervention strategies, reporting methods and a variety of real-world examples. Using a practical, application-based approach, the course aims to ensure learners not only learn the critical concepts, but can apply them, as well.

For employees in manager or supervisory roles, an additional manager-specific module addresses their unique responsibilities in preventing and responding to harassment, including handling complaints and creating a culture of ethics and respect.
