Christianity in the Workplace: An Employers Guide to Christian Beliefs
A significant proportion of employees in the workplace are professing Christians. Employers may wish to facilitate an inclusive working environment that respects the religious beliefs of employees in meaningful ways.
This resource was produced in collaboration with the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship and the Evangelical Alliance to provide employers with insight on how Christian beliefs might manifest in the workplace, as well as exploring and analysing the relevant law in the area. It aims to be a useful and informative reference for employers in the United Kingdom, encouraging them to cultivate an inclusive work environment and giving specific examples on how that might be achieved. It also seeks to equip and inspire Christians with confidence and knowledge of the current legal freedoms they enjoy in the workplace.
Employers are facing challenges over expressions of religion and belief in the workplace as new research shows HR professionals have a very different view of practising faith at work when compared to employees.
BOSSES all over the Western world have been warned. Unless they make allowances for the religious faiths of their ever more diverse workforces, they will suffer lawsuits, official rebukes and protests from staff.
Speak Up is a new resource from the Evangelical Alliance and the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship to equip and inspire Christians with confidence and knowledge of the current legal freedoms we have to share our faith.
