The Race at Work survey 2018, sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered in partnership with YouGov is designed to build further on the findings of the 2015 survey, the largest survey of its kind the UK has experienced that received over 24,000 respondents. 

The survey questions examine the following workplace issues:

  • How to talk about race
  • Pay gap monitoring and reporting 
  • Progression
  • Recruitment 
  • Workplace bullying and harassment 

Business in the Community is keen for people from all ethnicities to complete the short survey,  everyone aged 16 and over, employed or self-employed in the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) are encouraged to participate.  Completion of the survey will take approximately 13 minutes.

 “I’m delighted that we are running the Race at Work survey again in 2018. We received an overwhelming response to the original survey in 2015, which highlighted that this is an issue that people want to talk about. Now we will see if the recommendations we made in 2015 are being put into practice by employers and what impact that is having on BAME employees across the UK. I also welcome the Government’s commitment to support the survey and championing of the race equality agenda.” 
Sandra Kerr OBE, Race Equality Director, Business in the Community
