Gallup’s study had several interesting insights. Worryingly, U.S. adults seem to be less concerned about this issue in 2019 than they were two years back. However, respondents were widely in agreement that sexual harassment is a “major problem,” with 70% of women and 53% of men talking about this issue.
Employers must adopt a culture where reporting harassment in the workplace is easy and free of stigma. This would increase accountability, inviting employees at every rung to put their best foot forward without fear of discrimination or inappropriate behavior. It also shows employees that organizations care about them, an essential driver of job satisfaction and security.
Here are six tools that can help you achieve this in 2020, arranged in no particular order.
STOPit offers an end-to-end suite of tools for reporting sexual harassment in the workplace. It comprises an employee-facing portal to capture reports, anonymize communication, and provide two-way messaging support. At the backend, it offers an incident management platform to review and act on these reports. STOPit also comes with an incident monitoring service, comprising a team who will listen to incoming reports 24/7/365. You can follow up with employees anonymously using this solution to ensure that they see their commitment to justice through.
STOPit follows a bespoke pricing model, and costs are based on the size and nature of your business.
