The New World of Work: Principles and Practices for Addressing Harassment

Abstract

The problem of workplace harassment spans all industries and affects employees at all levels, and the proliferation of remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic has created new opportunities and challenges for addressing harassment in the workplace. The Purple Campaign, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending workplace harassment, developed a first-of-its-kind corporate certification program specifically focused on addressing workplace harassment with the goal of recognizing employers taking exemplary steps and implementing best practices in the field across the four parts of the certification program’s framework: Reduce, Respond, Rethink, and Rebuild. This report highlights what we know from research and practice for each part of the framework and identifies emerging trends in ameliorating workplace harassment drawn from background research, a pilot phase survey, and conversations with corporate leaders and policy experts.
