According to the report, the four women who accused Lauer "confirmed that they did not tell their direct manager or anyone else in a position of authority about their sexual encounters with Lauer."

Those who were interviewed said they were unaware that Lauer "had engaged in sexual activity with other employees." While many admitted they "heard or read rumors about Lauer's personal life… and the possibility of extramarital affairs," the interviewees apparently assumed that "the rumored extramarital affairs were with women outside of the Company."

Even though Lauer was known for being "flirtatious" in the workplace, most witnesses reportedly "had positive things to say about Lauer's demeanor in the workplace." The report stated:
