The results of our survey - “Weinstein a year on; what has changed?”

Posted by Tracy Powley 13/11/18

Senior Manager inappropriate behaviourWith the Philip Green scandal emerging, the answer could be seen as “not nearly enough” but the positives to come out of the survey were that people felt there was a greater understanding of sexual harassment - and clarity is a vital first step towards prevention.

However more concerning was that over 60% said managers were no more likely to deal with inappropriate behaviour than a year ago. 








When asked what the barriers are to creating a harassment-free environment the top responses were 

• People still not wanting to speak up in a professional environment

• Lack of role modelling from the top - “unwavering” leadership 

• Being clear on where the lines are between what is acceptable and what is not 

If we really want to make a difference, we must equip managers with the skills and confidence to step in where needed, and ideally at an early stage before things escalate and another Weinstein/Philip Green type scandal emerges.
