Workers Would Rather Quit Than Report Harassment

April 15th, 2019

More than one-quarter of female workers would quit their jobs than report sexual harassment, according to a recent survey conducted by Randstad US. The survey also reveals that 29 percent of women have received some form of unwelcome attention while on the job, compared to 20 percent of men. Those taking the survey agreed that sexual harassment often occurs in the workplace, but many people do not want to report incidents when they happen. Perhaps that is because 30 percent of employees do not feel their company is properly managing sexual harassment complaints, and 26 percent said their companies do not respond quickly when complaints are made.

Half of the respondents admitted they have not spoken up after hearing an inappropriate remark. More than half of those surveyed know a woman who suffered from workplace sexual harassment. Another survey, conducted by Fairygodboss, found that 57 percent of women have not found any changes in the way their workplace handles sexual harassment allegations in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

A Generational Difference

There is a generational difference in the way women feel about sexual harassment in the workplace. Sixty-four percent of young women aged 18 to 24 report they know of someone who was sexually harassed, compared to 44 percent of employees aged 65 and up. Women of color call sexual harassment a serious problem by a whopping 80 percent, while 63 percent of white women deem it a serious issue.

The Male Viewpoint

Male employees do not understand what is acceptable, as far as complimenting a female employee, without it being perceived as sexual harassment. Both men and women think that having more men willing to discuss these issues will lead to greater workplace equality. More than half agree that employers could do more to promote gender equality overall.
