Our Trust Gap research showed that harassment was the most common form of misconduct in the US. Over a quarter (26%) of office workers have experienced harassment at some point in their careers.
The greatest challenge is encouraging employees to report misconduct so organizations can get an accurate picture of the problem and resolve it. When it comes to harassment specifically, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) estimates that one in three complaints it handles include a harassment allegation. But the body also believes that 75% of all workplace harassment incidents go unreported.
From these and other psychologically focused studies, we know that the two main reasons people do not speak up about misconduct are fear of retaliation and an expectation that nothing will be done. In the wake of #MeToo and #TimesUp we also understand that shame and cultural norms contribute to allow sexual harassment to go underreported.
Vault Platform: Your solution for workplace harassment
When it comes to exposing and resolving harassment, no matter how good the intentions, well-meaning initiatives to encourage openness and transparency often fall short for two key reasons:
- Fear of consequences – embarrassment, isolation, low performance ratings, lost promotions, and even firing
- A sense of futility – the belief that saying something won’t make a difference, so why bother?
Vault Platform addresses these challenges with a modern and highly accessible solution encouraging employees to speak up in confidence. The Resolution Hub helps investigators efficiently document and respond to incidents, closing the loop with employees, and getting to resolution as quickly as possible.
