Brunswick Review The Crisis Issue

Workplace Conduct: Wake-Up Call

Research shows leadership need to demonstrate responsiveness.

Research by Brunswick found a gap between how leaders view issues of workplace conduct and how non-leadership employees see them. In short, leaders are optimistic – and out of touch. The data, collected from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 US adults in August 2018, also found that workplace conduct issues remain prevalent across industries, and that employee trust is in short supply. Almost one in two workers believed HR would prioritize the company over employees.

One in four American employees have seen or heard of a workplace conduct incident in their firm in the past 12 months.

89 percent want to hear from their CEO about respect in the workplace, yet only 29 percent have.

Three in 10 employees believe discrimination is widespread in the workplace.
