A clear appetite for societal change has seen people increasingly willing to take matters into their own hands.
One of the most present examples of this phenomenon is the #MeToo movement which began to spread virally in October 2017, drawing attention to the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. It followed sexual-abuse allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and has been given significant exposure by high profile celebrities and commentators including Alyssa Milano and Tanara Burke.
In the workplace, employers are largely seen as what should be a trusted partner for change and 71% of people believe it is their CEO that should take the lead. This includes leading the charge on sensitive issues such as discrimination, sexual harassment, and gender equality. But there are still significant gaps between employer and employee when it comes to trust, accountability and culture.
