MeToo in the Workplace
We've all seen the hashtag #MeToo. While this movement impacts the entire population, HR and employee relations managers experience it a little differently.
They must navigate the space for the safety and well-being of employees, while ensuring organization compliance with legal and regulatory guidelines.
As a human resources professional, you need to be in the know on compliance matters. What can HR professionals do to ensure compliance in a climate of #MeToo?
After the viral #MeToo hashtag came to life in 2017, awareness of misconduct reached new levels. Now, in the two-plus years post-hashtag, it's a global conversation that can elicit strong emotions.
Unfortunately, professional settings are not immune to the effects of #MeToo. In fact, a 2016 Harvard Business Review survey showed that 25% of women experienced sexual coercion at work and 66% received unwanted sexual attention. And it is recognized that harassment knows no gender - with unwanted advances affecting men and women alike.
How does this translate in the workplace? And what is your company or organization doing to ensure compliance in a post #MeToo world?
