Special Video on Harassment is Rocking World Wide Must Watch
More than half of women have experienced harassment and bullying at work, according to the biggest-ever study of women in the workplace, and the sectors where it is the worst might surprise you.
Some 52 percent of women said they’d experienced bullying and harassment at work over the previous three years, according to a British online survey of 25,000 people carried out by workplace gender campaign Opportunity Now and global professional services firm PwC.
And experts warn that the impact of workplace harassment could also be felt in the damage it causes to companies’ reputation and ability to recruit top talent. Examples of bullying and harassment ranged from being deliberately undermined – which more than one in four respondents reported – to victimization, or the intentional blocking of career progression, which more than one in six said they had experienced.
