Find out how harassment also factors in
Although formal reports of sexual harassment at work have been filed at 10 percent of large U.K. companies, a recently released survey found unreported incidences have also occurred at 12 percent of organizations with 250 or more employees.
In addition to experiencing sexual harassment at work, sexism, according to three in five HR professionals, remains a general issue for female employees.
Thirty percent of the survey respondents said sexism in the workplace is a concern at their organization. The number of large employers that report female employees face prejudice and discrimination due to their gender is even higher — 41 percent.
