Minority Groups Face Bullying and Discrimination at Work

Minority groups continue to face bullying and rude remarks at work despite the emphasis on diversity and inclusion (D&I). In a new report, Questionmark, the online assessment provider, demonstrates how staff assessments can help employers nurture a more inclusive workforce.
Almost 30% of ethnic minority people and 39% of LGBT+ people have heard derogatory comments or jokes about people like them from co-workers, according to a McKinsey survey. Women are more than twice as likely as men to feel excluded from workplace social events.1
The Questionmark report, “Overcoming bias and building diverse business success” explores how employers that do not build a truly diverse workforce risk missing out on significant business benefits. Companies in the top quartile for ethnic diversity outperform those in the lowest quartile by 36%. Firms in the top quartile for gender diversity outperform the lowest by 25%.2
