Prevent Sexual Violence at Your Company
We help companies that are in position of responsibility and duty of care to address and prevent sexual abuse at the workplace by delivering specialized and truly unique services.
The abuse of power and people is likely more pervasive than any of us want to realise. It includes child abuse, intimate partner violence, institutional abuse, and beyond. Its existence in every fabric of society from the family, religion, sports, workplace to whole communities is undeniable. Addressing the problem may be among the most challenging yet hugely important actions that we need to take.
For this reason it is in our best interest to learn about it, manage its impacts, do our best to prevent it and ultimately change how we administer our social institutions, social structures, and how we relate to one another. It is time to address abuse, prevent it, change and grow as individuals, communities, society and nations.
Although the legal and moral cases for preventing sexual harassment should be sufficiently compelling for employers, there is also a business case to be made: a poor organisational culture and failure to deal with sexual harassment allegations lead to employees being dissatisfied with work, having a low opinion of their managers, absenting themselves or wanting to leave. Unite the Union argues that sexual harassment “creates a work environment of fear and intimidation”.
Research shows that sexual violence is a highly gendered social issue, with women being victims significantly more than men. Allowing women to be treated in a demeaning way at work stifles their professional development and contribution.(From: House of Commons Report on Sexual Harassment at the workplace, 2018)
A BBC survey found that 40% of women and 18% of men had experienced
unwanted sexual behaviour in the workplace (November 2017).
Furthermore, a EU-wide research by the European Union Agency For Fundamental Rights sampled over 42 000 women across the EU and found that 32% of all victims in the EU said the perpetrator was a boss, colleague or customer and 75% of women in qualified professions or top management jobs have been sexually harassed.
