Moonves Resigns Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Richard Quest, Quest Means Business, CNN Money, September 10, 2018

Quest-Means-Business-Moonves

It's a pivotal moment for the #MeToo Movement and for CBS. Their Chief Executive, Les Moonves, is leaving the company immediately, pushed out by fresh accusations of sexual assault. Moonves is the first Fortune 500 CEO to be ousted through the #MeToo era.

The controversy isn't over because the details of Moonves' payout is still to be decided. CBS shares have regained some of the early losses. They are still down for the day, that's partly because with Moonves gone, the battle for control of CBS has come to an end.

Richard Quest talked to media reputation strategist, Davia Temin, about Moonves' exit and potential payout, the #MeToo Movement, how a board should respond to years' old allegations, and Serena Williams' response to her fine at the U.S. Open. [...read more]

Money managers get caught up in #MeToo movement

Christine Williamson, Pensions & Investments, September 3, 2018

PandI-Money-Managers-Get-Caught-Up

In the year since Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assaults came to light, institutional investors have begun to ask external money managers about their firms' histories on sexual misconduct.

The nascent trend to ask money managers to disclose sexual harassment and assault settlements was sparked by the #MeToo movement, which reignited last October after women all over the world shared their stories of sexual abuse in response to the Weinstein revelations, industry observers said.

"Weinstein was the game changer," said Davia B. Temin, formerly a money management marketing executive who now is president and CEO of New York-based Temin and Co. Inc., a crisis and reputation management specialist.

"Pension funds and other institutional investors aren't going to invest — or remain invested — with money managers with reputational issues. Negative publicity is a huge deterrent," Ms. Temin said. [...read more]

The need for sleep: Elon Musk and the perils of working around the clock

Rajeshni Naidu-Ghelani, BNN Bloomberg, August 24, 2018

Bnn-Bloomberg

Burning the midnight oil at work? Many of us are guilty of it. But Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk's admission in a New York Times interview that he works 120 hours a week on little sleep has sparked a debate about workplace culture and how productive senior executives can be under grueling work schedules.

Everyone from Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington to workplace experts have weighed in on Musk's need to slow down and recharge. But will taking a break make an impact on the fast-paced and pressurized work culture in the corporate world?

While founder-driven companies typically have a sense of urgency to succeed, there is a fine line between achieving those goals and fostering an "over-stressed mania," said Davia Temin, CEO of New York-based management consultancy Temin and Company.

Musk's work ethic is not unusual when you look at other tech leaders like Apple Inc.'s late co-founder Steve Jobs. But Temin adds that Musk's "acting out" could be stressing out Tesla's employees.

"If Musk were a moderate man he would never have accomplished what he has," Temin said. [...read more]

The troubling case of Asia Argento, Jimmy Bennett and the #MeToo movement

Richard Winton, Los Angeles Times, August 23, 2018

LATimes-Asia-Argento

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is in the early stages of an investigation into allegations that actress Asia Argento sexually abused child actor Jimmy Bennett at a Marina del Rey hotel in 2013. But like so many sexual abuse allegations in Hollywood over the last year, this case is playing out in the media and the court of public opinion.

Law enforcement authorities from Los Angeles to London have investigated dozens of allegations against Hollywood figures including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and others. The Argento case, however, is unique because she was one of the leading figures calling out others in Hollywood for alleged wrongdoing.

"It's a man-bites-dog story, and it's an anomaly in a serious and profound movement forward," said Davia Temin, a crisis manager who does research on the #MeToo movement. "It shows that the story gets more complicated." [...read more]

Les Moonves, The Most Powerful CEO To Face #MeToo, Is Winning. So Far.

Emily Peck, Huffington Post, August 19, 2018

HuffPost-Les-Moonves

It's been more than three weeks since The New Yorker published Ronan Farrow's damning article on Les Moonves, the longtime chief executive of CBS. The allegations were horrifying.

For all the hype about how the Me Too movement is taking down powerful men, nearly a third of the most high-profile executives and celebrities accused of misconduct since 2015 haven't lost their jobs, according to data compiled by New York crisis consulting firm Temin & Co.

Temin started tracking this back when women were coming forward with accusations against comedian Bill Cosby, but the movement really gained speed in the fall of 2017, after the Weinstein allegations came to light. In all, the firm says, 483 executives and celebrities have been accused publicly, which it measures by being mentioned in at least seven major publications. Of that number, 144 have not experienced any professional fallout ― yet. That includes Trump, Moonves and Jeff Fager, the "60 Minutes" executive producer. Some may be under investigation.

At least four have already made comebacks, according to Temin. [...read more]

The big picture: #MeToo has exposed hundreds of high-profile people

Haley Britzky, Axios, July 7, 2018

Axios-Big-Picture-MeToo

More than 400 high-profile executives and employees from across the professional spectrum have been brought down by the #MeToo movement in the last 18 months, Bloomberg reports.

The big picture: While #MeToo isn't dominating headlines the way it was last year, the movement has still been at work behind the scenes. Davia Temin, whose firm Temin & Co. conducted the study cited by Bloomberg, said that while the accusation rate "has been slowing ... the percentage of people being fired has increased."

Hundreds of Business Leaders Face Accusations in #MeToo Movement

NACD Weekend Reader, June 30, 2018

NACD-Weekend-Reader

A new reports finds the #MeToo movement over the last 18 months has opened the door to allegations against 417 high-profile employees and corporate executives, Bloomberg reports. The majority of those individuals are business leaders and executives—410 of them are men—from a wide array of industries, according to the report by crisis consulting firm Temin & Co.

Many of the allegations stem from incidents that happened years ago, but have only recently come to light. And while the rate of accusations has slowed recently, the percentage of individuals fired has increased.

"It started to become a tsunami, certainly after [Harvey] Weinstein, and it sparked other stories in the same industry and then across all industries," said Davia Temin, president and CEO of Temin & Co. "I think it's settled into a new plateau, but it is certainly higher than we've ever had before."

Of the 417 high-profile individuals who were accused of issues related to sexual harassment, racial insensitivity, or other misconduct, 193 were fired, and 122 were either suspended, put on leave, or are having their actions investigated. [...read more]

#MeToo has accused more than 400 prominent execs and employees of sexual misconduct

Jeanette Settembre, Moneyish, June 30, 2018

Moneyish-metoo

The #MeToo movement keeps taking names.

At least 414 high up executives and employees across a number of industries have been accused of sexual misconduct through the #MeToo movement in the past 18 months, according to data from a New York-based crisis consulting firm, as reported by Time. Only seven of the 414 accused are women.

The report found that there has been an uptick in fired employees and managers following the bombshell sexual harassment accusations levied against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein last October. The number of people being accused of harassment in the workplace has slowed down, but the percentage of those being terminated has gone up.

"It started to become a tsunami, certainly after Weinstein, and it sparked other stories in the same industry and then across all industries," Davia Temin, whose Temin & Co. firm conducted the research, told Time. "I think it's settled into a new plateau, but it is certainly higher than we've ever had before." [...read more]

Temin's #MeToo research - In the media this week

Since the start of the #MeToo movement, Temin and Company has been trying to find some reliable metrics on its national scope, in order to put all of the stories into a broader context for our clients. We couldn't find anything comprehensive. So we decided to compile our own database of all those accused of sexual harassment or associated complaints, since the first Cosby trial.

We included high-profile executives, sports figures, and celebrities across every industry. This database is now rich with information, growing every day, and providing lots of insight.

It appears we're the only ones doing this, and in the past week the media has taken a strong interest, starting with a great story in Bloomberg. We thought you might be interested in seeing the coverage:

Please do let us know if you have any questions or comments. This movement can be a game changer, and this is one way to gauge its pace.

Netflix, Intel ousters show companies are moving fast to tackle exec misconduct

Sarah Toy, MarketWatch, June 27, 2018

MarketWatch 6-27-18 Netflix Intel ousters

Companies act swiftly nowadays. Businesses are finding they must deal quickly and decisively with inappropriate behavior in the workplace in a way they never had to before. What once took months or years to address has been accelerated by the increasing influence of online consumer advocacy groups, the role of social media in people's lives and the #MeToo movement.

"Companies are looking at a new set of best practices," said Davia Temin, chief executive of Temin & Co., a New York-based reputation and crisis-management firm. "The old set would have been to close your eyes, ignore it and hope it goes away or that no one notices," she said.

These new standards are causing some big changes at the top.

At least 416 executives and celebrities have been accused of sexual misconduct since December 2015, according to a data collected by Temin's firm. The majority of Temin's list consists of corporate executives, though it does include celebrities like Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey. Over the past 18 months, 195 have resigned or have been fired and 118 have been suspended, placed on leave or are facing legal repercussions without permanent removal. [...read more]
