Disturbing, engaging and enlightening. That’s the best way to describe the 52-page report prepared by the lawyers hired by the CBC to look into the Jian Ghomeshi scandal.


For some, the report is a disappointment because it doesn’t name names. But, from an HR perspective, the pages are a goldmine. The “who did what” is secondary — the examination of what appear to be solid HR practices and how they failed to stop alleged poor behaviour from a key employee are the most valuable takeaways.
