50% of employees aged 18 to 54 have reported experiencing gaslighting at their company. Many fear that if they speak up, their feelings could be disregarded or they will be gaslit into thinking there isn't a real problem at hand.
Fear of repercussions.
Another leading cause of silence is the fear of "what will happen next?" Studies show that once an incident has been reported, 82% of whistleblowers suffer further harassment and 60% subsequently risk losing their jobs.
Discomfort with sharing.
Finally, chances are, many individuals don’t feel fully comfortable approaching such personal issues with the people who work beside them and above them.
