MOHARRAM & PARTNERS and HARASSMAP (www.harassmap.org), a leading and award winning Egyptian foundation that works to end the social acceptability of sexual harassment in Egypt, signed a partnership agreement to design and launch a national initiative aiming to eradicate sexual harassment in Egypt???s workplaces.
    As an employer, you have a responsibility to maintain a workplace that is free of sexual harassment. This is your legal obligation, but it also makes good business sense. If you allow sexual harassment to flourish in your workplace, you will pay a high price in poor employee morale, low productivity, low customer satisfaction and lawsuits. The most effective weapon against sexual harassment is prevention. There are a number of steps that you can take to reduce the risk of sexual harassment occurring in your workplace including the adoption of a clear sexual harassment policy, training of employees as well as the training of managers and supervisors.
    HOW WILL WE SUPPORT YOU?
    HarassMap in partnership with Moharram & Partners are launching a national capacity building program aiming to support businesses in developing, adopting and implementing an effective sexual harassment policy.
By joining the SAFE CORPORATES INITIATIVE, you will not only empower your organization with necessary tools to prevent and reduce the harm of sexual harassment, but you will also be part of a broader national initiative championing mandatory training for all corporates to eradicate sexual harassment in Egypt.
    WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THE SAFE CORPORATES INITIATIVE?
  • BE AN EMPLOYER OF CHOICE: Becoming an employer of choice means that applicants are eager to work for you, that people envy your employees, that you receive unsolicited resumes, and that your most talented workers stay with the company throughout their careers.
  • BE A BRAND OF CHOICE: Clients are making a choice and a choice that is heavily influenced by brands with a social purpose. By joining Safe Corporates, you???ll become a brand of choice of clients and consumers that feel strongly about sexual harassment.
  • PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS: Sexual Harassment incidents can lead to a reputational damage and liability for your organization. Avoiding or at least minimizing incidents of discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace will at the very least avoid employer???s liability for punitive damages.
THE SAFE CORPORATES BRAND
    Brands are used to create distinctive images and associations in the minds of stakeholders to help a company stand out in the marketplace, and to communicate and engage with their customers. By joining the program and meeting its requirements, your organization will be entitled to use the Safe Corporates Brand in marketing and communication campaigns/collaterals.
Furthermore, the Safe Corporates Program will promote champions and partners as role models in our society. This will be achieved through a nationwide campaign to show partners??? positive contribution to society through fighting sexual harassment and inspire others to have zero-tolerance for sexual harassment.
