Brunswick Insight’s poll of employees reveals how they would like their companies to respond. By Mara Riemer.
Americans are rightly outraged at the killing of George Floyd and are making their voices heard in the streets and online. We have seen a flood of corporate statements across the news media, social media and employee inboxes and they’ve generated a wide range of strong reactions.
To find out what workers expect from their companies, Brunswick conducted a poll of 1,192 US workers, including an over-sample of 292 Black workers, on June 1, 2020. We sought to understand their opinions and perceptions of companies speaking out on racial discrimination in America and what actions companies should take.
