The study was released by Q-Factor, a non-profit focused on LGBT equality in business.
Q-Factor, a Denmark-based non-profit dedicated to ensuring LGBT and gender equality in business, today announced the results of the Danish LGBT Workplace Survey, an independent study of the climate of the Danish workforce as it relates to the LGBT community.
1,280 respondents participated in the online survey, which took place from 01.10.2010 – 20.04.2011. Participants were asked to report on factors such as their happiness as LGBT workers in Denmark and how their productivity is affected by their employers’ perceived attitudes toward the LGBT workforce. All responses were collected anonymously.
“Previous studies have shown that LGBT inclusion, or lack thereof, directly affects the efficiency of LGBT employees,” said Becky Steckhahn-Strohmer, co-founder of Q-Factor. “The Danish LGBT Workplace Study was designed to be a comprehensive overview of how LGBT employees experience work life in Denmark. The results outline problem areas as well as strengths of Danish employers in relation to LGBT diversity. The results clearly point to specific actions employers can take to make their employees feel accepted and supported. This distinction was surprising in the clear difference it points out. These results will enable the creation of a new set of standards for diversity and inclusion in the Danish workplace. Ultimately, inclusion translates into a healthier bottom line for the company and a healthier workforce.
