Conducting extraordinary performance appraisals is an essential skill for every manager. The performance appraisal is the single most effective tool a manager an use for performance improvement. Appraisals serve as an opportunity to provide constructive feedback and coaching as well as a time to give recognition and inspiration. Not only do great appraisals improve employee performance, but they strengthen manager performance as well. After all, managers cannot truly succeed until their employees do.

“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”

 Wizard of Oz

There are moments when an issue receives the attention it deserves. In 2017, that issue was sexual harassment. Thanks to the many high-profile stories that made headlines, the curtain on harassment has been pushed wide open.

Many of us were shocked by the stories. The choices made by some people in power were both disgusting and disappointing. But, to think this is just an issue for Hollywood or Washington would be a mistake. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in the past seven years, US companies paid out more than $295 million in public penalties over sexual harassment claims. That doesn’t account for untold amounts more in cases settled privately.*

Encouraging a safe, supportive workplace is something we all want. Discussions on sexual harassment prevention will help move us toward that goal.

At Star Thrower, we believe in the power of conversation. Exploring issues together not only offers a dynamic learning experience, but improves our sense of community.

We offer a wide range of harassment prevention training videos. Whether you prefer vignettes or more definition-driven training programs, any video from our collection will help you set the stage for productive conversations.

Let’s celebrate the fact that the curtain on harassment has been thrown open. Improve your work community by investing in harassment prevention today.
