San Diego, CA November 2, 2010: With so many recent headlines announcing sexual harassment lawsuits and workplace discrimination, one wonders how any company would risk not adequately training their employees about such issues before they occur. Often, cost and time are the reasons why training gets ignored even though it has been proven that the number of legal pitfalls can be drastically reduced through proper training and education. That’s why Lumina Training is excited to announce the launch of a new website, www.LuminaTraining.com, that will help businesses train their employees on critical topics such as sexual harassment, bullying, diversity, ethics and legal compliance. This content-rich site is a one-stop marketplace where human resource managers and business owners can find all the tools they need to make employee workplace training relevant, timely, easy and affordable.
Certain workplace issues, such as sexual harassment, can be a perennial problem. To add to that, many employees and supervisors still don’t realize what actually constitutes sexual harassment. LuminaTraining.com is therefore on a mission to educate its customers so that they can take the appropriate action. LuminaTraining.com offers high quality training videos, trainer guides, employee workbooks and online training programs, with most videos available as a free online preview. But not only will visitors find relevant training tools, they will find extensive resources at their fingertips. Under each category of training, there are related articles, legal updates, definitions and links to related sites. Various case studies provide insight into the outcomes of real life scenarios, and visitors can test their knowledge by taking fun and informative quizzes.
As an employer, there are numerous legal pitfalls which can be avoided through proper training and prevention measures. Many states require yearly or biannual training. Lumina’s training videos can be used over and over again, so with one training video a business can meet the state’s requirements, year after year. In this present economy, such a investment is not worth ignoring.
In addition to great products, LuminaTraining.com offers personalized customer service. Customers are pleased with the ease of transaction, including the ability to chat directly with a Product Manager and determine which video is best suited to their company. Such interactions are the reason why Lumina Training has attracted other notable clients such as Kaiser Permanente, Bank of New York, Chase Manhattan Bank, Ciba-Geigy Canada, Ltd., SONY, First Bank of Chicago, and more.
