The majority of U.S. employees feel they can’t share an idea, opinion or concern at work due to a fear of disrupting their role at the company, according to a new survey by Fierce Conversations.

The research, which surveyed more than 1,000 full-time employees across the U.S., found nearly 63 per cent of respondents have chosen not to share a concern or negative feedback at work. The survey participants’ top reason was they don’t want to seem combative. This was followed by fear of being viewed as uncooperative and worry that others would view them negatively.
