Does Sex Harassment Training Work?

GUEST:

Johnny C. Taylor, CEO, Society for Human Resource Management

Transcript

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner handed the San Diego City Council his resignation five years ago today following accusations by several women that he sexually harassed them.

Since then, scandals involving inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace seem to have erupted everywhere in every profession, so much so that sexual harassment training is now mandatory in nearly every type of workplace: corporate, non-profit, academic.

Taylor joins Midday Thursday to discuss what works and what does not.
