ECB staff speak out against changes to internal survey

“Dignity at work” survey to be followed up later, central bank says

ECB 2017

European Central Bank (ECB) staff have accused the institution of removing sensitive questions pertaining to harassment and discrimination in an internal survey.

Some staff said the questions seemed to have been removed to improve how the central bank is perceived.

“It is as if the ECB says it has tackled high inflation because it stopped collecting data on prices,” ECB staff union vice-president Carlos Bowles told Politico, which first reported the story on April 29.
