BCC: Behind Closed Cubicles

'You look gorgeous, Honey!' 'Anything for you...' 'I love you from the bottom of my heart.' 'It was only a joke; you should learn to enjoy!'

Sounds common, right? But what happens when these words are spoken in the wrong place and in the wrong tone?
BCC, demonstrates, through a collection of short stories, how such apparently harmless statements have impacted people at the workplace. The short stories are based on real life sexual harassment incidents from across the Indian corporate world. Stories that include both genders, and range from freshers to CXOs, and across different industries.

Sexual Harrassment at the Workplace

Statistics state that 22 out of every 100 employees are sexually harassed at some point of their career. Of which, 9 are harassed more than three times and 5 out of the 22 harassed are men.

Short Stories based on true incidents

BCC attempts to give tips and share best practices to accompany the accounts of real-life incidents, so the reader is better equipped to deal with different forms of incidents:

- Employees, on how to deal with harassment, if such a situation arises
- Witness to an incident, how do you support your colleagues and the victims?
- HR professionals or Harassment Committee members, it is your responsibility to prevent and redress such incidents
- Employers, how do you protect your employees, your brand and be compliant to the law of the land?
