Workplace misconduct of any kind can create a crisis for any company. Already bad situations are worsened by companies that try to ignore or cover up the situation. A recent study conducted by Vault Platform, a platform for workplace misconduct reporting, states that U.S. businesses shelled out $20.2 billion this past year related to workplace misconduct. Forbes spoke with Kabrina Krebel Chang, associate dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion and clinical associate professor in markets, public policy, and law, to discuss how companies can prevent workplace misconduct.
“Make it clear to all workers that every person deserves to be treated with respect and professionalism. It is critical to culture and is the fulcrum that prevents misconduct being viewed just as something you don’t want to get caught doing rather than something that is fundamentally wrong,”Kabrina Krebel Chang
