The Disturbing Workplace Culture at Rio Tinto

Another fascinating story from a report in January 2022 looking into the culture issues at Rio Tinto. The findings from the report are quite disturbing. The fact that the report has been published in full by Rio Tinto is to be applauded.

A report released by Rio Tinto on Tuesday outlined a culture of bullying, harassment and racism at the global mining giant, including 21 complaints of actual or attempted rape or sexual assault over the past five years.

Nearly half of all employees who responded to an external review of the miner’s workplace culture commissioned by Rio said they had been bullied, while racism was found to be common across a number of areas.
