Preventing sexual harassment in the workplace - BAMA Psychology

According to Eurofund (European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions), 30% of female workers in the European Union have suffered sexual harassment in the workplace. However, only 15% of the cases are reported, and this figure drops down to 8 % in the case of Spain. One of the keys to reduce these alarming numbers is preventing and raising awareness for an early identification and report of any case of harassment.

The lack of information is the main barrier for the victims, who face situations of isolation and rejection if they don’t manage to tackle the problem from the very beginning.
