No one who hears or reads the news is unaware of the problem of sexual harassment. However, many businesses are not prepared for the consequences of it.
The bottom line is that harassment is prevalent in the workplace, including sexual harassment, and it can be costly for employers. In 2017 alone, the U.S. Equal Employment and Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recovered almost $71 million for victims of harassment in the workplace. Much of the fines, settlements and legal fees are paid by employers.
Sexual harassment is an unfortunate reality in businesses. And employers can be liable if it happens. HR managers needs to be clear about harassment laws and policies.

Just when you thought it was safe to go to work. Based on the sheer number of complaints made and charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the workplace in America is still host to a variety of harassing behaviors.
While sexual harassment has been publicized a great deal over the last few years, it does not appear to have decreased noticeably in the American workplace. In fact, despite a heightened awareness of sexual harassment and other forms of harassment, there appears to be an actual increase in incidents.
In a recent survey 65 percent of respondents agreed that culture is more important to performance than strategy or operating model.
Outsourcing business functions is a matter of fiscal strategy. And viewing outsourcing costs as an investment rather than an expense should be part of that strategy.
As organizations grow in size, so does the associated support functions within that organization. More employees means more HR and payroll tasks. More employees require more internal support, which means more employees just for those functions. And this can become counterproductive at some point.
