New research from Acas on sexual harassment has revealed that only one in four workers agree that international media coverage has helped to improve their workplace culture. The survey also found that 58% of workers believe that their current employer is doing about the right amount to reduce sexual harassment and 46% believe that ‘making changes to the wider culture of the company’ would be effective in preventing sexual harassment. The top 3 specific measures identified, which would be effective in reducing sexual harassment at work were: (1) better training on the topic for all staff (60%); (2) updating existing policies and procedures for dealing with sexual harassment (44%); and, (3) creating new policies and procedures (38%).
