What prevention and intervention strategies have your organization created and implemented to address the epidemic of sexual harassment? Are those strategies working? According to the 2016 EEOC report on harassment in the workplace, 90% of those who say they were harassed never reported it or took formal action. Considering this sobering statistic, what will you do differently? Do you or your employer tolerate or ignore any employee who has a reputation for sexually inappropriate behavior. Perhaps he gets excused with comments such as “Oh, that’s just George, he doesn’t mean anything by it.” The EEOC also found that sexual harassment complaints are continuing to increase despite some organizations conducting sexual harassment training.
