Charlotte, NC (PressExposure) December 04, 2011 -- Allen Interactions, an internationally-acclaimed custom learning design, development and strategic consulting firm, and Global Compliance, a leader in corporate compliance solutions and services, won a Silver International Davey Award for an e-learning course in the Interactive Multimedia - Training category.
The award-winning e-learning course, Preventing Workplace Harassment and Discrimination is an innovative, immersive multimedia learning experience, written and approved by in-house expert advisers with proven legal experience in the field of harassment. This course utilizes the inductive approach to training, where learners are given scenarios and examples to facilitate learning new concepts, principles, and best practices. This method enables the learner to add to their prior knowledge by experiencing new situations to analyze and new problems to solve. This practice enables the learners to self assess the application of content learned.
A variety of interactive exercises in this harassment and discrimination e-learning course allows learners to: explore situations which tend to result in common mistakes
view eye-opening perspectives on harassment in the workplace and learn what the law and policies actually say and mean
distinguish appropriate, casual behavior from inappropriate behavior
make challenging decisions and explore the specific consequences of one's actions
The course also ensures that supervisors understand their responsibilities to respond to employee questions and concerns as well as when it is appropriate to involve Human Resources and other authorities.
"So often harassment (or soft skills) training does not get the creative consideration needed to produce high quality learning experiences. Our partnership with Global Compliance demonstrates just how successful this approach can be," stated Dr. Richard Sites, Tampa Studio Executive for Allen Interactions.
"Our customers are leaders in their respective fields and demand market-leading online training solutions for their employees," said Jim Burke, CEO, Global Compliance. "We partnered with Allen Interactions to help our customers create safe and harassment free working environments with an engaged and educated workforce."
