82% of UK Christians don’t wear religious jewelry to work over fears of harassment, survey finds


According to a recent survey conducted by Pearn Kandola, 82% of Christians in the UK do not wear religious jewelry or other items that may signify their faith to work over fears of being harassed, Premier Christian News reports.

The study entitled, Religion at Work: Experiences of Christian Employees, said doing so would result in them being subjected to “ridicule and hostility from colleagues,” if coworkers found out that they were Christians.

The report entitled, Religion at Work: Experiences of Christian Employees, concluded that while businesses superficially talk about inclusivity and diversity, it doesn’t appear to apply to Christians.

The study also found that 48% of Christians believe their business could do more to make employees feel comfortable about their faith.
