Press Release

First Sexual Harassment Prevention Training with Compliance Guarantee

 

Media Partners launches worry-free training. 

 

BELLEVUE, WA, May 26th, 2020 Media Partners Corporation, a leading producer of people skills and compliance training films and learning content, has released a new, streamlined version of its best-selling sexual harassment prevention training, Once & For All: Stopping Sexual Harassment at Work with a compliance guarantee. Media Partners now guarantees that the training complies with Federal Title VII as well as all State-mandated sexual harassment training requirements. The company backs this guarantee with a commitment to cover customers’ government-related penalties or fines for non-compliant training up to two times their annual Once and For All subscription fee.  See details on the 200% Compliance Guarantee at www.mediapartners.com/OFAGuarantee 

 

“Ensuring compliance with sexual harassment regulations is becoming increasingly complex for our customers,” said John Hansen, CEO of Media Partners. “Due to the onerous task of monitoring frequent law changes, the administrative nightmare for organizations with employees in states with and without additional mandates, and the fear of non-compliance, our customers are looking for help.  The new version of Once & For All simplifies the compliance burden with a worry-free guarantee that our training materials are compliant.” 

 

Since its introduction in October of 2018, Once & For All has won 7 awards for cinematic and educational excellence and been used by thousands of organizations to train and test hundreds of thousands of learners. The program’s flexible design and multiple versions enable organizations with employees across the U.S. to implement their training confident the organization is compliant with the most recent regulations. Once & For All also provides manager-specific training and added instruction on bystander intervention and creating a culture of respect–elements now recognized as critical to real and lasting behavior change organization-wide.

“Although we target State and Federal compliance with this 2020 version, sexual harassment training makes economic sense beyond compliance,” said Mike Masters, CRO of Media Partners. “Businesses with sexual harassment issues are less profitable, have lower stock valuations, and sustain higher labor costs. [2] We want customers to know that our sexual harassment training is the best choice, whether it’s for compliance, cost and risk reduction, or a larger initiative to build a positive workplace.”
