#MeToo Movement has required all brands to look within their corporate culture and be prepared for whistleblowing.
The attention paid to Nike’s workplace environment has not gone away since May 7, when I wrote about four lessons on how to handle complaints about toxic culture based on actions by Nike CEO Mark Parker. Since then, 5 additional executives have left the company, bringing the number of exits since claims of sexual harassment arose to a total of 12 people.
There is no questioning the power of the #MeToo Movement, which has required all brands to look within their corporate culture and change as necessary to be in front of sexual discrimination issues. Interested in learning more about best practices for business owners to think about in this period of heightened attention to workplace environments, I spoke with HR Acuity CEO Deb Muller on what businesses and managers can do and should do immediately following a report of a #MeToo moment at work.
