Employees answered as many as 70 questions, depending on how they responded during the survey, while a multitude of examples of potential harassment and discrimination were provided – from dirty jokes to unpleasant messages to out and out abuse – plus employees had the opportunity to specify when they had these experiences and whether they had seen others be subjected to harassment or discrimination.
The survey also asked employees whether they see themselves as part of a minority.
“We have an unwavering zero tolerance policy towards harassment and discrimination, and our surveys must reflect this. Given that we wish to be inclusive for everyone, we must remember to ask minorities whether they feel included and be cautious about drawing conclusions based solely on the statements of the majority. That is why obtaining a nuanced picture means a lot to us,” says Karsten Breum.
