New national employee survey by leading job aggregator, ClickJobs.io highlights how toxic many workplaces still are in the UK with millions of workers experiencing bullying, homophobic behaviour and even sexual harassment. The extensive national survey showed a staggering 42% admit they work in a toxic workplace with one in five (16%) of employees witnessing homophobic behaviour in their workplace which is a troubling statistic especially as the country has just celebrated pride month.
A third of employees (31%) stated they have witnessed sexist behaviour and more disturbingly 17% had actually seen sexual harassment taking place in their workplace. The survey painted a stark picture of the modern workplace and highlighted that there is still a lot of work that needs to be done by employers and HR departments to ensure these toxic behaviours are removed. Bullying (42%), offensive comments (37%) and discrimination (31%) topped the list of inappropriate behaviours that employees witnessed in the UK.
