Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities: How to address diversity in the professional sphere

Alongside legal considerations, questions of ethics and social issues are becoming increasingly important in the world of work. Nowadays, companies are not only evaluated in terms of their financial success – their treatment of employees has increasingly come under public scrutiny. Negative headlines can sour a company’s public image, impact its opportunities in searching for qualified staff and even result in boycotts among clients.

In the various sections of this training program, your employees will learn the most important information about equal treatment in the workplace. They will accompany two protagonists from a law firm as they go about their everyday work, while learning all about the laws and regulations in place and picking up some practical tips for their own professional life. Based on Equal Treatment EU Law, this e-learning can be used for international trainings of this subject. A certificate is available upon completion of the course.
