Brand new research released by Seramount, provides a perspective on what corporate American has done to address racism, since the murder of George Floyd.
Here are some of the interesting takeaways from the findings:
- 83% of corporate employees, and 95% of those in leadership, say they’re committed to fighting racism within their workplace.
- 33% of corporate executives report feeling forced to support anti-racism efforts, and nearly 8 out of 10 say the focus on diversity, equity and inclusion is blown out of proportion.
- Black employees say the effectiveness of their company’s recruitment, retention, employee development and compensation processes are hindered by bias.
- And, while other cultural groups reported feeling more supported by their company and colleagues over the past year, as a group, Asians indicated feeling less supported.
