Study: Majority of LGBT workers closeted on the job

May 9, 2014 /LGBT News/ A newly released study by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, The Cost of the Closet and the Rewards of Inclusion, identifies that 53% of the LGBT employees in the USA are closeted on the job.  

The Cost of the Closet surveyed over 800 LGBT workers across the country and included an added survey of non-LGBT workers.  Here are some of the results:

  • 53% of LGBT employees hide who they are at work;
  • 80 % of non-LGBT workers report that conversations about social lives, relationships and dating come up weekly and often daily and 81% feel that LGBT people “should not have to hide who they are at work,” however less than half would feel comfortable hearing an LGBT coworker talk about dating;
  • One in four LGBT employees report hearing negative comments such as “that’s so gay” while at work;
  • One-fifth of LGBT workers report looking for a job specifically because the environment wasn’t accepting of LGBT identities, and close to one in ten (9%) successfully left a job for the same reasons they were not comfortable;
  • 26% have stayed in a job because the environment was accepting.
