Experts share the 5 steps companies can take to support the mental health and wellbeing of employees of color
Employee wellbeing has risen on the agenda for business leaders in recent years. But research shows a racial disparity in employees’ experience of the workplace.
A quarter of people of color reported suffering or witnessing bullying or harassment by their managers at the work in the previous two years, according to a 2018 survey by UK business network Business in the Community.
The following year’s survey found that 30% of employees of color reported being subjected to bad behavior in the last year due to their ethnicity. Last August, 56% of Black staff who took part in the next survey said they were underpaid, compared with 41% of white employees.
Three experts share with Insider the five steps employers can take to create workplaces that support the mental health and wellbeing of all their staff.
