Beyond the hashtags and headlines, a rapid shift is occurring in the way our society talks about and addresses harassment. For many HR professionals, this is uncharted territory. Yet HR teams are a crucial part of the solution; to succeed, they need to know what’s possible.

Join our live panel discussion with Cornell University experts to start navigating HR’s role in creating the systemic organizational and cultural changes needed to eliminate harassment and ensure all employees can thrive in a safe, respectful workplace.

Cornell panelists Susan Brecher and Katrina Nobles—researchers and experts in crisis, conflict, and HR management—will discuss what role HR plays in workplace harassment and strategic organizational guidance, as well as how to handle high-level policy decisions in the current environment and move toward rebuilding harassment-free workplace cultures.

Don’t miss this opportunity to ask your questions, have them answered live, and learn practical HR approaches to begin addressing this urgent problem.

From the #MeToo movement to ongoing battles over the rights of rideshare drivers and other gig economy workers, workplace conflicts and how to resolve them are major issues facing today’s organizations. For most companies, the ideal place to handle sexual harassment claims and other conflict areas is in the workplace itself through mandatory arbitration procedures that keep disputes out of the courts and out of the public eye.

In this lively one-hour online event with Susan Brecher and Katrina Nobles from Cornell University’s Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution, you will:

Discuss current issues in workplace conflict and how organizations are responding to them.
Explore the arguments for and against mandatory arbitration procedures.

Understand the importance of having an HR department that is prepared to deal with sexual harassment and other challenges.
Learn why allowing workplace conflicts to spill over to the court system can be seen as a cultural failure within an organization.

Today’s working household looks drastically different than it did just 30 years ago: Women are half of the workforce, more than two-thirds of families are dual-earner; and in the majority of these, spouses contribute almost equally to household income. These changes are affecting how people navigate gender roles, work/family demands, and career choices. Join a live discussion with Cornell ILR School faculty expert Pamela Tolbert to better understand these critical shifts so you can design effective policies and management practices for the contemporary workplace.

Your Human Resources subscription will include access to these recordings of past webinars.

Every #MeToo has a story and a lifetime of cost borne by the victim. Recognizing the different costs – health, education, interpersonal, and career – that have been described by researchers over the last several decades is the next step to shift the burden from the victim to the person who caused the injury.

Karns will discuss the research evidence of the costs through a case study and discuss the ways to hold perpetrators responsible for the injuries they caused.

Conflict is an inherent part of life, yet we often learn from society and our organizations that it’s something we need to “solve” or completely avoid—especially in the workplace. But what if conflict actually challenges employees to grow, change, and perform better? Over the past twenty years, many organizations have adopted this view, refocusing their efforts on supporting healthy, balanced workplace conflict. HR professionals are instrumental in shaping the strategy behind these efforts.

To learn more about this transformation and HR’s role, join us for a live discussion on March 21 at 1 PM EST with Cornell University’s Ariel Avgar, expert in employee relations and organizational conflict management.

In this live online event, Ariel will:

  • Introduce you to recent developments in organizational conflict management
  • Explore ways to be more proactive about conflict, better understand its potential benefits, and mitigate negative consequences
  • Provide you with a road map for applying a strategic lens to workplace conflict
