“Becoming Totally POSH Compliant”
POSH training for employees helps them identify and differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate behavior in the workplace. It also educates participants on the legal aspect under the PoSH (Prevention of sexual harassment) act. Posh training gives a clear understanding of employees what kind of behavior falls under sexual harassment.
POSH training is necessary to foster a respectful and safe working environment for employees. One incident is enough to create a bad reputation for the company and to ruin the career of the accused employee. So, you must ensure that your employees are sensitized about the boundaries of acceptable and unacceptable behaviour at workplace.
Many employees are not aware of the fundamental definition of sexual harassment, and every employee needs to understand this Act. Most of the time employees are not aware that unintentionally their actions might fall under sexual harassment. It’s much more complex than one person touchinganother person in an inappropriate way. Indeed, this behaviour may fall under sexual harassment, but this is not the only behaviour.
Organisations have their own set of values but one cannot ignore the effects of social culture on corporate culture. It is observed that employees carry social learning to the workplace unconsciously. Sometimes there is specific behaviour which is acceptable in the society, but it is not acceptable at the workplace.
Prevention is better than cure; this is the perfect line that expresses the need for POSH training. Whenever any Sexual-harassment incidents happens, the next day or within a few hours, the companies name gets tarnished in media/ or social media. Now media is also not restricted to print but also TV channels, magazines and social media which damage the brand of the company and hence conducting awareness sessions especially in context of workspace has become very important.
As per section 19(c) Sexual-harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Readressal Act 2013), every employer is required to conduct awareness workshops for all the employees to understand the law as well as sensitise them on the subject. If the employers failed to do t the penalty up to 50,000 can be levied on the employer
