Global responses to questions measuring inclusion
Here are the sobering statistics when measuring across companies and countries:
80% of employees have observed some discrimination in their current company. 60% of employees have faced obstacles in their career progression, which they believe are due to who they are (ie gender/race/ethnicity, religion/sexuality/social mobility/health etc.). 60% of employees do not feel empowered to call out this behaviour to senior management or HR. 18% of employees who have taken parental leave believe that this has impacted their careers. This increases to 24% when you concentrate on females. 28% of employees feel left out at work when engaging in work activities or socially. 27% of employees believe that nepotism is alive and kicking in their organisation.
