Network 10 will get ahead of any potential complaints of company culture after reports emerged that it has been conducting a pre-emptive review into staff conduct across the network for months.
Nine’s newspapers have reported that confidential sources at the network have revealed Network 10 is conducting an internal, company-wide review into the behaviour of its employees.
All staff at programs like Studio 10 and The Project will be interviewed by Network 10’s human resources department as part of the review, according to industry sources who told The Sydney Morning Herald staff were being asked about “sexual discrimination, racism and any issues of harassment or assault”.
The sources also told The Herald the review had commenced “several months ago” as part of a global effort by its parent, ViacomCBS, to improve workplace culture.
However, B&T understands that the initiative has been developed and implemented locally.
“10 ViacomCBS is always looking for ways to improve the environment and culture of its workplace,” a 10 ViacomCBS spokesperson told B&T.
“Staff are engaged on an ongoing basis in these discussions across all departments as we continue our commitment to ensuring our workplace is collaborative and inclusive.”
It comes after recent reports that Network 10 television programs have been alleged sites of discrimination, with Neighbours’ actors Shareena Clanton and Meyne Wyatt claiming that they had endured multiple racist traumas while working on the show.
A spokesperson for Neighbours producer Fremantle said there had been “significant and lengthy discussions” with Clanton during her time on the program, and “we will continue to work with all cast and crew to ensure Neighbours continues to be a fully inclusive environment”.
