Leading career site Indeed along with Censuswide recently conducted a survey among Indian employees across companies in the technology sector.

The survey conducted between December 2018 and January 2019 aimed to understand the perception of employers in the wake of public allegations of misconduct at the workplace.

The findings indicated that more women are likely to leave their job sin the event of a gender misconduct.

Here are some interesting numbers from the survey. 

“While it is the responsibility of organisations to ensure the integrity and prevent breaches or untoward activities under their purview, no sector is immune to the occasional offence. What is important in such cases is that the company step up and take ownership of their actions and address the issue in a transparent and timely manner, to restore stakeholder trust," Venkata Machavarapu, head of engineering, India and site director at Indeed India said.
