The Department of Defense (DoD), United States military, and Bravo Company specifically seek to reduce sexual harassment and assault in the military, with the ultimate end goal to eliminate these behaviors. All employees need to be educated and trained on identifying and reporting sexual harassment and sexual assault as well as bystander intervention, prevention work, and victim support. The DoD has continuously worked to cultivate a military culture that is free from sexual harassment and sexual assault. Sexual harassment and sexual assault can negatively affect victims physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Articles and research studies were reviewed to further gather information on the effects that sexual harassment and assault can have on employees and methods that organizations use to increase knowledge and understanding. The study provided gives insight on the value of policy training within the work environment. Adequate resources, accessible assistance, and training programs are necessary to foster and maintain a cohesive work environment and to support victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
