Although DGN Workplace Initiatives LLC conducts harassment prevention training programs for employees and managers, it also works in partnership with employers to treat harassment prevention as an initiative. This is true because employees in many industries do not trust that an employer will properly respond to a complaint or report of workplace harassment. Some studies show that as much as 75% of employees will not report workplace harassment. As a result, it often takes time and a series of programs to shift that perception. This typically includes a combination of training programs, coaching, and a variety of exercises.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion should be handled as an initiative and not simply as a standalone training program. One reason for this is implicit bias. It is submitted that everyone has some form of implicit bias. This can impact how employees treat others. This includes hiring decisions, performance reviews, discipline, promotion, and opportunities to thrive at work.
DGN Workplace Initiatives LLC typically begins with meetings to become acquainted, better understand the company, and to establish goals. The next step typically is to identify resources, secure a team, develop a strategy, and a timeline. The initiative is unique for each company and oftentimes needs to have some room for flexibility.
Affirmative Action Plans
DGN Workplace Initiatives LLC works with employers to create viable affirmative action plans and to help employers implement the plans. The goal is to support the recruitment and advancement of diverse employees.
Investigations and Early Intervention
DGN Workplace Initiatives LLC is experienced in investigating complaints and reports that are made to employers of harassment or discrimination. In addition, DGN workplace Initiatives LLC also collaborates with employers to secure early resolutions of matters, even if they do not rise to the level of harassment or discrimination.
This is a key benefit to an employer who wants employees to perceive that their organization is truly a great place to work. In addition, early intervention has a positive impact on employee retention, morale, and employee engagement.
