Les Moonves and CBS’s Culture of Sexual Harassment
Les Moonves, the chairman and CEO of CBS Corporation, is now the subject of alleged sexual harassment. He is one of the most powerful men in the media business and allegations are now breaking that he made crude physical advances, and forcibly kissed and groped at least six women. Moonves rejects these claims.
The women allege that they were retaliated against when they refused his advances or reported them.
CBS is holding a special board meeting to determine how to investigate the Sexual Harassment claims made against Moonves.
In Sexual Harassment Cases we usually see that the corporate tone is set at the top. When a chief executives engage in disgusting and despicable behavior, they often feel that this behavior is the prerogative of the position that they hold. These executives become omnipotent, and they surround themselves with people who not only tolerate and enable the behavior, but also facilitate it. Unfortunately, the surrounding employees often emulate the behavior and engage in the same behavior themselves. In many corporate cultures there are no checks and balances, and the single thing that drives sexual harassment in the workplace is leadership.
Moonves has issued a statement stating that he regrets making anyone of the women feel uncomfortable by any Sexual Harassment or Sexual Advances. CBS has stated that it received no complaints and in Moonves’ 24 years at the network, there have been no complaints until now.
