On Monday, the NPO announced that an independent investigation into work culture would be added DWDD. The NPO Board of Directors is the official client for the search.
This is remarkable, because NPO directors Frans Klein and Livlang advised Lieutenant Colonel Van Nieuwkerk before he made his first statement about unwanted behaviour. to write De Volkskrant Friday.
However, the nonprofit itself believes that the public broadcaster can continue to be the search client. The broadcaster wrote in a press release that the committee that will conduct the investigation is independent. This will consist of four or five people. Two independent consultants also assist the committee.
The first part of the study focuses on the “systemic causes” of abusive behaviour. Examples include “competitive environment, behavior, attitude, impact of temporary contracts, and working with freelancers.” According to the NPO, this part of the research should lead to specific recommendations for the future.
The second part of the study focuses on the aggressive behavior itself. This relates to the form in which the infringing behavior occurred, the signals in place and what was done with those signals.
Foreign Minister Oslo believes that an independent commission issuing a formal order to investigate and oversee progress is a “logical step”. According to the minister, the non-profit organization is the “appropriate party” to launch the investigation. At its request, the Media Authority is also involved in this matter.
The results of the study are expected to be released in the first half of 2023.
