In the latest case of ad employees being treated inappropriately, a training exercise scheduled this week calls for employees to earn points by dancing in front of their colleagues.
The exercise calls for ad sales staff to answer questions. If they get the answers wrong, they can ‘choose’ to dance. If the judge likes their dancing, they will get half the points back.
Ad employees brought the exercise to the Guild’s attention, and we have informed the Company that this is inappropriate and, with a largely female staff, carries “the strong stink of sexual harassment.”
The staff are not trained monkeys, the Guild wrote, and they should not be asked to dance to please their bosses.
