Half of the employees of the Governor General have experienced workplace humiliation in the last year.
That's not exactly the more equitable, cheery, lady-led workplace Justin Trudeau promised when implementing his gender-quotas across the whole of government.
The results of the annual workplace survey of Federal employees are in and. The survey polls bureaucrats on their opinions about their job - everything from their salary compensation to workplace harassment.
For the second year in a row, Rideau Hall has a toxic workplace problem.
22% of employees working in Rideau Hall have experienced harassment in the last year, slightly down from 25% in 2018 but according to Maclean's, it still remains the third-highest number of any federal department or agency. The average percentage of employees who say the experienced workplace harassment is only 14% across all federal agencies.
Staff at Rideau Hall also report an increase in being excluded or ignored, up to 40% from 30% in 2018. Staff reporting humiliation is now at 50% in 2019, up from 36% in 2018. Employees experiencing interference with work or withheld resources is up to 41% in 2019, from 27% in 2018.
