#MeToo movement generates 417 harassment charges in companies, says consultancy

Danielle Brant, Folha de S.Paolo, June 27, 2018

Folha-de-S-Paulo-6-27-18-Movimento-MeToo

The #MeToo movement (#EuTambem, in Brazil) generated 417 counts sexual harassment or misconduct against executives and employees of companies, a survey carried out by Temin and Company of New York. The data were collected from news published since December 2015, when the trial of Comedian Bill Cosby for accusations of sexual harassment began.

To be included in the database, the case had to appear at least seven times in the media.

"We wanted to know if the trigger for the charges had been Bill Cosby or, more recently, Harvey Weinstein", says Davia Temin, president of Temin and Company. Weinstein is a film producer who, in October 2017, was accused of harassment and sexual abuse by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cara Delevigne.

Temin identified the case of Weinstein as the main factor that led to the accusations against executives and employees. [...read more]

#MeToo by the Numbers: 379 High-Profile People Accused Since Harvey Weinstein

Tim Baysinger, TheWrap, June 26, 2018

 The-Wrap-MeToo-by-the-Numbers

A New York-based crisis consulting firm says that the fall of Harvey Weinstein has inspired an 11-fold increase in accusations of sexual misconduct against high-profile people.

Per a database compiled by Temin and Co., since the Oct. 5, 2017 New York Times story detailing decades of misconduct by Weinstein, and an equally devastating New Yorker report just days later, 379 high-profile people have been accused, a staggering increase from the two years prior.

Temin and Co. looked into accusations starting from December 2015, when charges were brought against Bill Cosby for a 2004 sexual attack on former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand. The firm's president and CEO Davia Temin told TheWrap that just 38 high-profile people were accused of sexual misconduct or other similar misdeeds from Dec. 2015 until the Weinstein accusations became public.

But after Weinstein came the #MeToo movement, and a wave of women coming forward to report abuse. "We can see it was not the Cosby issue," Temin said. "It was absolutely Weinstein." [...read more]

Maxine Waters, Donald Trump, #MeToo Stats: Broadsheet June 26

Kristen Bellstrom, Fortune The Broadsheet, June 26, 2018

Fortune-The-Broadsheet

A new report finds that the #MeToo movement has so far ousted at least 417 high-profile people. Of that group, 193 were fired or left their jobs; another 122 have been put on leave, suspended or are facing investigations. And—notably—69 people have faced "no repercussions." "The eagle eyes are out for this," said Davia Temin, whose firm Temin and Co. did the research. "Women understand a little better their collective power, and they're using it." [...read more]

#MeToo Snares More Than 400 High-Profile People

Jeff Green, Bloomberg, June 25, 2018

Bloomberg-6-25-Me-Too-Snares-More-Than-400

At least 414 high-profile executives and employees across fields and industries have been outed by the #MeToo Movement in 18 months, according to data collected by a New York-based crisis consulting firm.

The study looked at national news articles that singled out people for sexual harassment or other similar misdeeds, said Davia Temin, whose firm Temin & Co. did the research. Individuals with at least seven separate, national mentions were included. That includes celebrities like Bill Cosby and Louis CK, but the vast majority are corporate executives and business leaders like Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who resigned late last week after revelations of an affair with an employee.

Uber’s Founder/CEO Got Too Much Deference From the Board, Says Former A.G.

Dan Bigman, Chief Executive, June 25, 2018

Chief-Executive-6-25-18-Ubers-Founder

When boards are in awe of founder CEOs, bad things can happen. Just ask former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

If Holder was to sum up the board's role in the cultural meltdown at Uber that almost derailed the company, it is that directors gave too much deference to founder/CEO Travis Kalanick. This is something, he says, that boards need to pay particular attention to in an era of superstar founder/CEOs and unicorn valuations.

"It used to be that the board might either tolerate bad behavior, or publicly support a CEO while privately chastising him relentlessly. Regardless, he or she would stay," said Davia Temin. "More recently, however, given the outsized attention to serious CEO misbehavior, boards really have little choice—they must react, and act, quickly and decisively." [...read more]

#MeToo Has Implicated 414 High-Profile Executives and Employees in 18 Months

Jeff Green of Bloomberg, TIME, June 25, 2018

Time-6-25-18-MeToo-Has-Implicated

At least 414 high-profile executives and employees across fields and industries have been outed by the #MeToo Movement in 18 months, according to data collected by a New York-based crisis consulting firm.

Among the 414 people accused, 190 were fired or left their jobs. Another 122 have been put on leave, suspended or are facing investigations since December 2016. For about 69 people, there were no repercussions. In recent months, the rate of accusations has been slowing but the percentage of people being fired has increased, Temin said.

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

Companies Caught Up in Trump’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ Immigration Policy See Big Risks

Samuel Rubenfeld, The Wall Street Journal, June 22, 2018

WSJ-6-22-Zero-Tolerance

There is tremendous reputational risk for companies linked in any way to the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy that separated infants and children from their parents as they crossed the southern U.S. border, according to crisis-communications experts.

It is hard for a company to defend itself if it is an identified participant in a global firestorm, said Davia Temin, president and chief executive of Temin & Co., a crisis-management firm. Actions matter rather than words in an issue fraught with such emotion, she said. "Anyone associated with this government action is at risk of reputational damage, serious reputational damage."

Melania Trump Jacket, Brian Krzanich Intel, Instagram Grandmas: Broadsheet June 22

Kristen Bellstrom, Fortune The Broadsheet, June 22, 2018

Fortune-The-Broadsheet

Yesterday, we learned that Intel CEO Brian Krzanich had resigned for having what is being carefully described as a past "consensual relationship" with an Intel employee, a violation of company policy. While Krzanich is far from the first chief to lose his job over an office romance, his departure is instructive about the ways in which corporate America is attempting to digest the #MeToo movement.

While some companies might have once been willing to overlook such transgressions—even when the rules were clear—those days are over, Davia Temin, chief executive of reputation management firm Temin & Co., told the WSJ. "There's a new level of rigor that says if something is on the books, it needs to be upheld and not ignored," she said, noting that boards have become increasingly vigilant about companies' reputations when it comes to issues of sexual misconduct.

Intel CEO Krzanich Resigns Over Relationship With Employee

Jay Greene and Vanessa Fuhrmans, The Wall Street Journal, June 21, 2018

WSJ-6-21-Intel-CEO-Krzanich-Resigns

Intel Corp. said Chief Executive Brian Krzanich resigned for violating company policy by having a relationship with a co-worker, one of the most prominent CEOs to lose a job in an era of greater scrutiny over workplace behavior.

The rise of the #MeToo movement has companies hewing closely to policies on both sexual harassment and consensual relationships, especially for business leaders, said Davia Temin. "There's a new level of rigor that says if something is on the books, it needs to be upheld and not ignored." [...read more]
