In a first, oil and natural gas corporation (ONGC) has become the first public sector enterprise to introduce a unique portal on gender sensitisation to impart training on prevention of sexual harassment (PoSH) at workplace. 

The portal was launched on January 25 by senior officials of the energy maharatna.
 
Director (HR) DD Misra, after unveiling the portal, said that the initiative is aimed at providing protection to employees against sexual harassment at workplace and for prevention and redressal of such complaints. That apart, the training will help inculcate a great sense of responsibility and professional ethics, required to discharge duties more efficiently, he added.
 
The initiative is designed to cover over 3,000 senior officers at the level of deputy general manager and above in the first phase, an ONGC press release said. The project which has been implemented by ONGC Academy will have a complete roll out over a period of one year to sensitise all the employees. 
 
The training is available to participants on ONGC Intranet site as well as individual latest versions of tablets and smart phones. It is an e-learning training programme which is helpful towards creating paperless office and provides an immersive experience of training at multiple locations simultaneously with the same effectiveness as done in classroom training.
