Some of California’s top companies, including Blue Diamond Growers and Albertsons — as well as the California divisions for Ernst & Young and AT&T — have signed on to a new campaign to promote inclusiveness and prevent harassment in the workplace.

The #RespectWorks campaign provides California companies with proven best practices to prevent harassment. As pointed out by the California Chamber of Commerce, which initiated the campaign, promoting respect in the workplace is a bottom-line issue for firms.

“Harassment-free workplaces have higher retention rates, recruit and hire the most qualified workers and are more productive and successful, said CalChamber President Allan Zaremberg.

The resources available through the campaign include a sample harassment discrimination and retaliation prevention policy, a policy implementation checklist, posters and a “tip of the month.”

If you own a business and have employees, this is something you can’t pass up. It’s also the law — supervisors and employees must complete mandatory sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training by Jan. 1, 2020.
