A new poll conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University on behalf of Taft Communications and the New Jersey Business & Industry Association found that offensive comments in the workplace are down in New Jersey
from 2017.

NJBIA CEO and President Michele Siekerka explained the significance of the data.

“One of New Jersey’s strengths is its diverse workforce. The survey results underscore the great strides New Jersey employers have made in creating workplaces that are open and inclusive. In fact, there is not a day that goes by when I don’t talk to a business leader who is engaged in diversity and inclusion work in some manner, from formal training to informal roundtables. We’re also seeing a rise in company employer resource/support groups. Given the wide diversity of our state and workforce, some of these statistics are very encouraging to see.”
