WorkStrong™ is a measurable approach that increases corporate social responsibility and the company bottom line while decreasing employee turnover and lost productivity.
Women Helping Women developed the WorkStrong™ certification program to empower companies, the workforce, and survivors to address workplace issues surrounding gender-based violence – a common, complex, and consequential public health epidemic that encompasses intimate-partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sexual harassment.
Together, we can WorkStrong™ to stop gender-based violence.
“It’s rare to find a training where employees walk away with actual practical skills, especially that apply to in and out of the workplace. WorkStrong helped create a dialogue internally that might not have been there organically. Women Helping Women worked closely with us every step of the way in a true partnership. The WorkStrong training has been one of the best trainings we’ve ever offered.”
“The WorkStrong training my team and I participated in was eye opening for all. It allowed people to share their stories in a comfortable environment with peers. Some employees were not aware of some of the daily struggles many face out in the field. Real life examples/role play allowed us to work as a team to find solutions.”
“Women Helping Women, the region’s leading advocate for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, is launching a workplace program that can provide employers with a toolkit and support for preventing workplace incidents and for assisting employees who are victims of abuse.”
