Over half of the women working in construction have been harassed according to a study.

According to recruitment consultant Hays, 55% of women had suffered sexual discrimination with 31% experiencing it in the past year. The survey also asked men on their experiences, with 36% of men also saying they had been victimised.

Ann Bentley, global director for construction consultancy ‘Rider Levett Bucknell’ said she wasn’t shocked by the findings.

“When you tell most well-meaning men about this kind of thing they’re absolutely staggered, they say ‘no, no, this doesn’t happen anymore’. Women know it does. It only takes a very small number of harassers to have this impact.”

The news comes amongst harassment in the work workplace making headlines in recent months from top Hollywood directors and actors.

Are you shocked by the survey?
