New national employee survey* by leading job site, RemoteWorker highlights how toxic many workplaces still are in the UK with millions of workers choosing to work from home to avoid bullying, homophobic behaviour and even sexual harassment.
The extensive national survey showed a staggering one in five (16%) of employees have witnessed homophobic behaviour in their workplace, a third of employees (31%) stated they had witnessed sexist behaviour and more disturbingly 17% had actually seen sexual harassment taking place in their workplace. Bullying (42%), offensive comments (37%) and discrimination (31%) topped the list of inappropriate behaviours that employees witnessed in the UK.
The survey painted a stark picture of the modern workplace and highlighted why so many workers prefer to work from home. Nearly all employees surveyed, 96%, said that working from home full or part-time was one of the most positive parts of their job.
