An internal survey conducted by The New York Times has revealed that roughly half of its employees are hesitant to speak freely in the workplace, the New York Post reported over the weekend.
“In response to the statement, ‘There is a free exchange of views in this company; people are not afraid to say what they really think,’ only 51% of Times employees responded in the affirmative,” the Post reported.
The 51 percent is reportedly “10% lower than the ‘benchmark.'”
“Although the majority of us feel well-informed, many indicated that differing viewpoints aren’t sought or valued in our work,” the Times’ assessment of its own data read. “Relatedly, we saw some negative responses on whether there’s a free exchange of views in the company, and scored below the benchmark on this question.”
The survey also recorded a 10% decline in the number of Times employees who believe their colleagues and superiors accept racial or ethnic differences, with more than a quarter of the staff believing the opposite.
