More than half of UK workers facing workplace discrimination

Over 25% of workers in the UK said they had experienced discrimination in the workplace, according to a new survey.

Younger workers leading charge to improve workplace equality

Prejudice against gender, race and age is still commonplace in UK workplaces, according to a survey from Sky to mark National Inclusion Week.

A new generation of workers could change this, with under-25s twice as likely to believe that employers must do more to fight inequality than the current generation of over-55s.

One in five of those surveyed said that being a woman negatively affects chances at promotion or even securing a job.

More than half of ‘Generation Z’ consider workplace equality and inclusion as a priority, compared to just over a quarter of ‘Baby-Boomers’.

One in five workers also said that being from a black, Asian or minority background decreases opportunities for employment and promotion, while only one in ten over-55 workers saw race as a barrier to success.

Disability is also a central issue for the up and coming generation – half of Generation Z workers see disability as negatively affecting career progression.

This new generation of workers could make major changes to the attitude to workplace discrimination and harassment, improving overall standards of equality, fairness and inclusion.
