Episode 78 — Ethical Cultures and Proactive Measures to Mitigate Organizational #MeToo Risks
The corporate world has been rocked by major governance failures surrounding #MeToo incidents and complaints. Recently, Google suffered global walkouts by employees who were upset by Google’s payment of lucrative severance packages to senior executives forced to resign because of sexual misconduct issues, and a culture of sexual misconduct that included 48 sexual misconduct incidents resulting in the departure/termination of employees.
Companies have to address this issue by promoting an ethical culture that provides workplace security, encourages reporting of such allegations, timely investigation and resolution of such allegations, and consistent discipline and termination actions designed to promote organizational justice.
In this episode, Michael Volkov, CEO of The Volkov Law Group, discusses proactive strategies to mitigate a company’s organizational risks in this area.
