Effective Tools for Reporting Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

February 5th, 2020

In this post-#MeToo environment, women are becoming more emboldened to take a stand against sexual harassment, especially in the workplace. Employers would be wise to take note and to support their staff members by providing a system for reporting such abuse in an accessible and anonymous way to save harassment victims from further distress.

A recent Gallup phone poll shared results that 48 percent of female respondents said they were sexually harassed in 2019, an increase from 42 percent in 2017. As the startling disclosures that brought on the #MeToo movement settle in with the public, interest on the issue seems to be waning. Still, the study found that sexual harassment is still a major problem, according to 70 percent of women and 53 percent of men.

It is certainly a major problem for employers. Fortunately, several tech industry innovations help employers deal with the issue by providing employees a safe and secure way to report the abuse, giving the employer an opportunity to address it and support a safe working environment for all employees.

STOPit Solutions

This service offers anonymous reporting, incident management, and emergency monitoring. Reports can be made by mobile app, web, or phone with picture and video capabilities.

This option seeks to address both harassment and discrimination. An artificial intelligence (AI) system is used to record incident reports and follow up with the aggrieved employee. It also features a dashboard for employers to manage the anonymous reports.

Vault Platform

Aiming to provide support for employees to report on a host of concerns, such as harassment, bullying, discrimination, theft, or fraud, this reporting platform allows employees to create a time-stamped log of incidents. The reporting tool offers the option to use the GoTogether feature, which only submits a report if it is not the first or only person reporting.

Designed for Human Resources departments and employees, Speakfully is an app that supports individuals and teams with documentation, reporting, and support. Individuals can create a log, attach files, and share data and reports. Teams can use analytic tools and share information on resolution measures.
