30.05.2023 | News, SAVALnews


What experiences or observations do you have of sexual harassment or sexism in your workplace? Has this been addressed and, if so, how?

The aim of this survey is to investigate the sexual harassment and sexism encountered in working life among the membership of 17 of Akava’s unions and to map the measures that have been taken in connection with sexual harassment.

The survey is carried out in cooperation with Taloustutkimus Ltd. Taloustutkimus operates in accordance with international market research rules, which means, for example, that responding to the survey is strictly confidential. The results will be reported in such a way that individual respondents cannot be identified, and Taloustutkimus will not give out the respondents’ information or responses to third parties.

Based on the results of the survey, recommendations or proposals for action will be drawn up for employee representatives and employers. At the end of the survey, you can also make suggestions on what trade unions could do to stop sexual harassment.
