Our latest HR Insights session will be exploring the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace.
The MeToo movement, which started in 2017, brought to light the widespread issue of sexual harassment in various industries and the workplace. The movement, which began as a hashtag on social media, encouraged survivors of sexual harassment to share their stories and sparked a global conversation about the prevalence of this problem.
As a turning point for so many industries, it has encouraged employers to expand on their policies and training programs, and to keep working towards creating a more inclusive work environment for all employees. As employers, we must continue to make progress in preventing and responding to sexual harassment in the workplace.
