The impact of reason for training on the relationship between “best practices” and sexual harassment training effectiveness

Authors


Abstract

The current study explored the use of best training practices on human resources managers' perceptions of sexual harassment training success and frequency of sexual harassment complaints. Results revealed no main effects of best training practices on sexual harassment training success. However, effects of best training practices on sexual harassment training success differed as a function of the organization's reason (legal vs. strategic) for implementing sexual harassment training. Additionally, one best training practice, posttraining activities, was significantly and negatively related to frequency of sexual harassment complaints.
