The #metoo movement is fundamentally changing the way companies around the world consider their business practices, and we’ve partnered closely with our clients every step of the way to help them reduce the risk of an incident.
But even the best-laid plans can be thwarted, and human misbehavior can create significant risk and reputational harm that must be addressed on an immediate basis. We’re there when that phone call comes, and have helped clients across sectors and regions promptly and effectively address brewing scandal. For example, we recently assisted a high-profile, household-name organization remove its CFO after receipt of a credible #metoo allegation followed by several additional reports, by successfully negotiating the voluntary exit of the executive involved and negotiating settlement with the main complainant. We did this while also managing the strategic communications and social media strategy following the termination.
