March 2023 saw us host our latest HR Insights session, with Refreshing Law's Anna Denton-Jones, dedicated to exploring the effects, impact, and significance of sexual harassment in the workplace and the rise and repercussions of the 2017 online #MeToo movement.
In this HR Insights session, attendees gained valuable insights and takeaways into the legal and practical aspects of dealing with sexual harassment cases within the workplace. From understanding current legal obligations to implementing effective and updated training programmes, this session provided essential guidance for employers and employees alike.

It has encouraged employers and business owners to expand and update their training, drawn attention to any outdated policies and processes, and urged organisations to keep working toward a more inclusive work environment for all.
