A1 on ITV News at Ten

A reporter, producer and cameraperson from ITV News at Ten came to A1 to interview staff and film our manufacturing processes for a special report about women in the workplace.

The three-and-a-half-minute report focused on issues around reporting sexual harassment and featured women in different industries – such as women who worked on a building site and one of the first women in the UK to win a claim for sexual harassment in the workplace. There was also a comment from a leading employment barrister.

The filming in our factory featured four women from different departments within A1 discussing issues around the barriers to reporting sexual harassment – in the wake of a report from the Trades Union Councils.

The message that came across loud and clear is that there is strong mutual trust between male and female employees at A1.

We are delighted that News at Ten asked A1 to be involved. It transpired that it was TJ who initially came to their attention, particularly her achievements, such as being named in the top 20 leading figures in the UK manufacturing industry.
