DECEMBER 2018 REPORT: Interpersonal Misconduct in the
Workplace: What It Is, How It Occurs and What You Should Do About It
A decade ago, companies made headlines for problems such as bribery, financial manipulation, and fraud. The attention has shifted, though. For the past year, mistreatment of employees, especially abusive behavior, sexual harassment and discrimination, has joined data privacy as a critical issue of our time. #MeToo and #TimesUp have given a name to the larger effort to unearth problems that have festered and to find a path towards safer more respectful workplaces. Efforts to expose the issues have uncovered repetitive patterns of interpersonal misconduct in organizations around the world.
"Certain organizations may be reluctant to address interpersonal misconduct because it is seen as "messy" and of less importance than issues of integrity such as fraud or corruption. This is inappropriate and a mistake: how a company respects individuals and addresses these types of issues often has a major impact on the overall ethical climate. Sincerity and courage are key."
-Emmanuel Lulin, SVP & Chief Ethics Officer, L'Oréal
