#MeToo is a movement that has impacted attitudes about business and women. Jane Randel, Co-President of Social Impact Consultancy of Karp Randel and Co-Founder of NO MORE, and Catherine Blades of Aflac examine corporate social responsibility and discuss the surprising findings of the annual 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Survey from Aflac.
This survey provides a revealing look into what American’s are thinking. For instance, the majority of employees (69%) and HR managers (80%) believe it is extremely or very important for U.S. companies to act socially responsible but matters of sexual harassment and gender equity now dominates the definition of “social responsibility” as never before. Ninety-two percent (92%) of employees believe clear procedures to address accusations of sexual harassment are necessary for a company to call itself responsible. The annual survey is a scientific study on corporate social responsibility with consumers and HR Managers sharing their views on corporate integrity, philanthropy and how it might influence their decisions.
IMPORTANT RESULTS FROM THE CSR STUDY:
PAY DAY—How attitudes are changing about equal pay for equal work
HEAD GAMES—15% of women say men have stolen or taken credit for their ideas
GENDER IMPRESSIONS—21% of women say they are regularly interrupted by men
