According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the restaurant industry files more harassment claims than any other industry. In fact, 90% of women and 70% of men have acknowledged experiencing some form of sexual harassment while working in restaurants.

What fuels this trend and what can HR personnel in the industry do to reduce the risk of such incidents within their establishment?

In this episode of HR Break Room®, organizational leadership and diversity expert Stefanie K. Johnson, Ph.D., joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • why sexual harassment happens more frequently in the restaurant industry
  • the differences HR professionals in this industry face, compared to other industries
  • how HR personnel in the restaurant industry can create policies to mitigate exposure within their organizations
  • how HR can help facilitate a safe and healthy workplace culture for all employees
