Matthew Fell, CBI UK Chief Policy Director, said:
“Anyone who runs a business knows that a happy, diverse and inclusive workplace where people can bring their whole self is more successful.
“One bad experience, regardless of your gender identity or sexuality, is one too many and unacceptable in modern Britain.
“The results of this survey should be a wake-up call to everyone – workplaces cultures are getting better but not fast enough. The CBI will continue to promote LGBT+ rights. We will encourage businesses to educate their staff, understand the progress they are making and empower role models.”
