Since we’re on a week of HR related topics, I wanted to circle back to a point from Part 2 of the Van Magazine article review. Specifically, the notion that good HR isn’t something that can be pointed at one stakeholder group, it must be top-down throughout the entire organization.
For example, the Van Magazine article focuses exclusively on musician-musician troubles but there one example in particular I wish the article included: Elizabeth Rowe’s lawsuit alleging sex-based pay discrimination at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
We covered that topic with a fine-tooth comb at the time and if there’s been a non-sexual misconduct case over the past decade that serves as the poster child for why the field needs better HR training, retraining, onboarding, and expectations, this is it.
If you don’t recall the details or just want to revisit, you’re in luck because we have six articles on the topic for you to examine. You can visit the topic archives or click through to each individual article below. Be sure to check out the article from 7/13/18: Breaking Down The Elizabeth Rowe Complaint.
