#MeToo is a movement that has impacted attitudes about business and women. Now, we have a timely interview with two experts on corporate social responsibility to discuss the surprising findings of the annual 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Survey from Aflac. This survey provides a revealing look into what American’s are thinking. For instance, the majority of employees (69%) and HR managers (80%) believe it is extremely or very important for U.S. companies to act socially responsible but matters of sexual harassment and gender equity now dominates the definition of “social responsibility” as never before. Ninety-two percent (92%) of employees believe clear procedures to address accusations of sexual harassment are necessary for a company to call itself responsible. 
 
Jane Randel, Co-President of Social Impact consultancy, Karp Randel and co-founder of NO MORE [nomore.org] (a global initiative to amplify and grow the movement to stop and prevent domestic violence and sexual assault), and Catherine Blades of Aflac will examine the study results and why it pays to practice Corporate Social Responsibility. The annual survey is a scientific study on corporate social responsibility with consumers and HR Managers sharing their views on corporate integrity, philanthropy and how it might influence their decisions.
