New Emtrain Workplace Culture Report Reveals Impact of Pandemic, Social Justice Movement on Employee Attitudes
SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In a year filled with pandemic chaos, social justice reckonings, and divisive elections, corporate cultures were stress-tested. Employees suffered hardships but some companies also took steps to build more respectful workplace culture in several key areas. That's according to data released today by Emtrain, which delivers workplace culture analytics through its online training to prevent bias, discrimination, harassment and ethical lapses in the workplace.
In the 2021 Workplace Culture Insights Report on Respect, Emtrain analyzed 23 million data points on attitudes about workplace culture collected from 370,000 employees at more than 400 companies, comparing data insights from 2019 to those collected in 2020/21. The findings show some encouraging signs in how employees feel about their workplace experience, but that there is still room for improvement. Some key findings include:
"COVID-19, the racial justice movement and political divisions brought unprecedented change to the workplace," said Emtrain founder and CEO Janine Yancey. "But our data shows a silver lining. The shared experience of adapting to the pandemic may have fostered a 'we're all in this together' mindset that encouraged greater empathy among coworkers. And the greater attention paid to the ills of systematic racism may have led to an attempt at greater understanding and empathy in the workplace. Obviously, the work is far from over and there are a few discouraging places where we may have slid backwards, but overall employees do look to be helping create a more respectful workplace culture."
