Working With Pride Report: Issues affecting LGBT+ people in the workplace

LGBT+ people make up between 2-5% of the population of the UK but are still experiencing high levels of discrimination in the workplace and significant inequalities, especially around mental health and wellbeing.

BITC has launched Working with Pride. This report combines insights from two of BITC’s flagship studies (Mental Health at Work and Equal Lives) produced in partnership with Mercer Marsh and Santander, to shine a light on the issues facing LGBT+ people in the workplace. The report finds that:

• Nearly three-quarters of LGBT+ people said that they had experienced mental health problems relating to work (74%)
• Experience of mental health issues was a third higher among LGBT+ employees
• Younger LGBT+ employees were found to be particularly vulnerable
• Gay & bi+ employees aren’t accessing support for carers as much as their colleagues
