“I highly recommend the Sexual Harassment training course offered by Humanist Learning Systems. The course is in-depth and does not cut any corners. It goes into the psychological element that allows perpetrators to continue to victimize others and offers a solution to address current conduct problems. The course is great!” – Alfredo Rodriguez, Bienvivir

“I really enjoyed this program! Such insight into Harassment/Bullies. A completely different aspect than I have ever heard before. Great information. Thank you again for your quick response to all of my emails. You are a pleasure to work with and I look forward to participating in many more.” – Gail Snyder, Avalon Foods

“I enjoyed it very much. The program was very user friendly and informative.” – Angail Webb, Wintex

“This course was unique in that it did not just address having a policy and reporting mechanism. It actually taught how to stop the behavior. This course is beneficial because it covers material not usually discussed.” – Jessica Shaw, Ohio State University

“Thank you for the introductory training, the retaliation element was truly eye opening and valuable knowledge.” – Ann Benke, Shawcor

“This course was nicely presented and well organized… Jennifer is very knowledgeable. I am definitely considering more courses on this topic.” – Jill Collins, Lakota Online

“This course was very informative, especially for someone who has been in HR for over 20 years and heard lots of training on this topic. Very well presented and it gave great insights from a psychological point of view. Definitely worth taking and not just for HRCI credit.” – Pamela Sweeney, Sykes Enterprises Inc.

“This training was very informative. I would recommend it to all HR professionals.” – Scott Stiller – Coastal Carolina University

“I really liked the video series. The speaker was engaging and easy to follow.” – Fawn Sanchez, Amazon

“This training contained wonderful content to expand the training I currently provide to employees. I always knew I shouldn’t be just reciting legal content, but I didn’t know how to really communicate about preventing or stopping harassment. This gave me tools to pass on to my managers and employees.” – Laura Davis, Ignite HR

“I have taken sexual harassment training previously and by far this training is very interesting due to the fact that it outlines the root of the problem and how to fix it. Definitely I will recommended to other HR professionals.” – Luz Leathers
