I’d heard about Matt Lauer. You can’t tell me the people at the top of NBC aren’t aware. Come on' Mc Gowan said

And shortly after Lauer was sacked, Lack promised a thorough "culture assessment" while also instituting mandatory in-person training on workplace behavior and harassment prevention for all 2000 employees of NBC News.
Lauer, in a statement, acknowledged "past relationships" with co-workers, but alluded to some differences of opinion with NBCU findings, which he did not detail. Many staffers told THR that they were not satisfied with NBCconducting its own investigation.
After the investigation was released, NBC News president Andy Lack wrote in a memo to staff that employees can now report these issues to both employee counselors and outside counsel.
"We can not change the past", Lack said. What we can do is learn from it, and try to make it right.
But the network says more needs to be done to ensure its more than 2,000 employees can complain about bad behavior and not fear retaliation. "Current and former members of NBC News and Today Show leadership, as well as News HR, stated that they had never received a complaint about inappropriate workplace behavior by Lauer, and we did not find any contrary evidence", the report said. And the other thing was Lauer engaged in a lot of very sexually charged banter and flirtation for which there seemed to be no consequences and seemed, in retrospect, to be making certain kinds of sexual approaches to women that way.
The investigation, which was led by NBCUniversal general counsel Kim Harris, focused on Lauer's behavior and complaints from four women, who came forward late past year. But Curry specifically named Lauer as a person of concern. "A number of girls additionally credibly described to the investigation crew being the topic of what they believed was a sexual overture from Lauer through which he complimented them on their look in sexually suggestive methods".
Former "Today" anchor Ann Curry had said in a news interview that she had gone to management to say they should watch Lauer after another woman had told her Lauer had harassed her.
"Curry declined to share with the investigation team the identity of anyone in management with whom she spoke at the time or the identity of the woman who came to her with a complaint about Lauer", the report also reads. Her name's Kim Harris.
Like Katie Couric recently claimed, it was misreported that the button on Lauer's desk locked his office door. "The former leaders with whom we spoke denied any such knowledge, however, and we were unable to otherwise substantiate it", the report said. And, David, we'd heard many times in news reports that Lauer's behavior was essentially common knowledge. Others disagree: "I don't feel like the investigation is not being taken seriously because it's being run by NBC", said one staffer. Five days passed between the timeshe alerted HR and the time company representatives interviewed her.
On Wednesday, over 5 months after Lauer was sacked, the community launched the findings of its inner investigation into the scandal.
"On November 28, 2017, Lauer was interviewed by senior members of NBCUniversal company HR and Authorized", continues the report.
"He is truly devastated and wants to make up for anything he has done to hurt people", that source said. Observers worry that this investigation will lack the apolitical nature of those done by outside law firms - many of which lead to the dismissal of top executives at companies with troubled sex harassment cultures.
