Voice of the Employee

When staff at the Lloyd’s of London insurance market fancy a lunchtime pint, many will head to the nearby pubs off Leadenhall Market such as The Grapes and The New Moon.

The City institution has decided to put posters up in the toilets of those pubs, urging its staff to report instances of sexual harassment they had witnessed.

It is the latest attempt by Lloyd’s to stamp out a culture of sexism and bullying at the market, where 500 members of staff have reported witnessing instances of sexual harassment over the past year.

“Uninvited advances or physical contact. That’s not a joke, that’s harassment,” reads one of the posters, while another warns against abuse masquerading as “banter”.
