    When employers are experiencing problems in their workforce including workplace harassment, there clearly is a cultural problem that must be addressed. Employees are not getting the message that this behavior is unacceptable, or they are so disengaged from their work and workplace that they descend into dysfunctional behavior. Employee engagement is a comprehensive HR strategy for greater employee loyalty, motivation and productivity. And by its very nature, companies that invest in employee engagement are cultivating a community shaped around shared values, values espoused and modeled at every level of management. This example produces dividends for the company in decreased absenteeism and fewer employee “problems,” including workplace harassment. The nature of employee engagement encourages people to bond as a community, as team members and as people. If the company demonstrably cares for and respects its employees, the employees will quite naturally have more care and respect for one another. And it’s never too late to begin.
