In the fourth episode of our Ten-Minute Talks video series, our Managing Partner, Clare Murray, and Partner and General Counsel, Beth Hale, discuss lessons for employers and firms arising from the Sue Gray report, following the investigation into the Downing Street and Whitehall gatherings, in particular:
- The importance of leaders understanding and following the rules that they set, leading by example to build a positive culture in growing organisations;
- Staff fear of speaking up and the importance of encouraging reporting of wrongdoing;
- Alcohol consumption in the workplace – why robust policies are so important; and
- Maintaining accountability and solid infrastructure in growing organisations.
