#WETOO: PREVENTING HARASSMENT AND BUILDING INCLUSION

Recent news has revealed the ubiquity of sexual harassment in the workplace. Organisations are evaluating their values and norms, especially regarding leadership, culture and governance. In the U.S., several states are requiring more stringent policies, focused training, clearer prohibitions on retaliation and restrictions on non-disclosure agreements with employees. This movement has only just begun, and many other states are likely to follow suit.

ETHICAL DECISION-MAKING AND CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

In recent years, stakeholders in the US, Canada, UK and the EU have heightened their focus on addressing corporate responsibility—particularly with regard to environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) related risks. These stakeholders include not only regulators but investors, customers and employees worldwide, bringing a new awareness to the connection between ethical leadership and brand resilience. Our team can help your senior leadership and board of directors integrate these considerations into your strategic planning and then embed them in your operations and culture across your organization.

Making good decisions at every level of your organization—and encouraging employees to raise concerns early—can proactively avoid costly crisis management and enforcement actions. By creating a risk-aware culture of integrity and ethical leadership, you can strengthen your competitive resilience.
