    Employers Embrace Effort to Promote Inclusiveness and Ensure Harassment Free Workplaces


    The California Chamber of Commerce today kicked off #RespectWorks, a campaign joined by a large and growing list of flagship California companies pledging to promote inclusiveness and prevent harassment in their workplaces.

    “Harassment has no place in our workplaces,” said Allan Zaremberg, President of CalChamber.  “Joining #RespectWorks demonstrates an employer’s solid commitment to their workers and the success of their company.   Harassment-free workplaces have higher retention rates, recruit and hire the most qualified workers and are more productive and successful.”

    So far, more than two dozen early signers have joined the #RespectWorks effort, pledging to use proven, best practices to prevent harassment.  The list of early supporters includes, among others:

    • Blue Diamond Growers
    • Gordon Biersch Brewing Company
    • Systems Integrated
    • Evans Hotels
    • Ernst & Young
    • Albertsons Companies
    • Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP
    • Lucas Public Affairs
    • Sacramento River Cats
    • Wilcox, Miller & Nelson
    • AT&T
    • Hornblower Cruises & Events
    • OUTSOURCE Consulting Services

    To join the campaign, companies should visit respectworks.calchamber.com.  A key component of the effort is the ability of companies to have free access to several anti-harassment resources and a new human-resources related tip each month.  The monthly tip will focus on practical aspects of creating workplaces free from abusive conduct.  #RespectWorks resources can found at respectworks.calchamber.comRead More
