Almost half (47 per cent) of UK LGBTQ+ employees say they have experienced discrimination or prejudice at work as a result of their sexuality or gender identity, research by Randstad has found. 

The global study surveyed more than 2,000 members of the LGBTQ+ community in seven countries, and evaluated progress and the challenges faced by the community in the workplace over the last five years.

In the poll 38 per cent of LGBTQ+ individuals said their sexuality or gender identity had an impact on their pay, and a quarter (27 per cent) claimed that the discrimination they faced at work had become worse in the past five years. 

Two in five (39 per cent) said they felt more isolated in their jobs than they did five years ago.
