In our Special Report, #MeToo: A Year Into a Movement in partnership with EVERFI, senior executives discuss the various ways that their companies have addressed the opportunity for growth, change and reflection presented by the #MeToo movement. Contributions from PSEG, Aflac, U.S. Bank, Blue Shield of California and EVERFI cover topics including training strategies to prevent harassment, how a speak-up culture can protect employees, changing consumer and investor expectations, and how organizations can change their approach to investigations, and how companies should use this moment to measure their organization’s culture. The report also features highlights of data from Ethisphere’s Ethical Culture & Perceptions Assessment, drawing on over 400,000 employee responses from all over the globe to paint a picture of how harassment impacts employee attitudes and confidence.
