October 29, 2019

PEMBROKE, Bermuda – October 29, 2019 – Sompo International Holdings Ltd., a Bermuda-based specialty provider of property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, announced today that it has partnered with Traliant, a provider of award-winning compliance training, to offer discounted sexual harassment prevention training to Sompo International’s qualified commercial management liability clients.

 

The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace said in its 2016 report that regular, interactive training tailored to an organization is among some of the effective measures organizations can take to prevent and address workplace harassment. Sompo International’s Commercial Management Liability (CML) team, which offers primary and excess Employment Practices Liability (EPL) products and related services to clients across the U.S, has proactively taken steps to participate in workplace harassment prevention. Through its partnership with Traliant, qualified Sompo International CML clients will now have access to the suite of Traliant’s industry-leading Preventing Discrimination and Harassment Training courses at an exclusive preferred pricing discount.

 

Mr. Joseph Kelly, Vice President and EPL National Practice Leader for Sompo International said, “In the wake of the #MeToo movement and a growing number of state laws mandating sexual harassment prevention training, more companies are looking for effective training solutions to reduce the risk of costly harassment claims and improve workplace culture. We are pleased to partner with industry leaders like Traliant to offer our eligible clients a range of risk control services to help address the risks they face in today’s rapidly changing marketplace.”

 

“We look forward to providing Sompo International’s qualified insureds with our innovative training solutions and exceptional customer service,” said Mr. Mike Pallatta, CEO and Co-Founder of Traliant. “Today’s diverse workplace requires new approaches to address the pervasive problem of harassment, which, if left unchecked, can lead to costly claims and reputational damage.”
