Sexual harassment in the workplace is hard to define. It can be seen as unwelcome sexual behaviour containing characteristics of emotional abuse or violence in general and sometimes as a specific entity unto itself. In the majority of the incidents, employees are afraid to denounce sexual harassment as they might lose their jobs, be penalized or even blamed. Identifying the methods to prevent and address this phenomenon at the workplace requires combined efforts and common policies and practices that can further tackle sexual harassment on its own roots.
TEAMWORK focuses on strengthening the combat against sexual harassment in the workplace with the aim to create a culture of zero tolerance. By developing guidelines for Human Resources professionals to revise staff policies, the project is aiming to empower their capacity to prevent and tackle sexual harassment at the workplace, as well as to introduce measures to protect the victims-employees regardless their gender and job level.
