A new study found that large majorities of Americans want businesses to remain politically neutral in the workplace and in public stances.

While many have confidence in businesses addressing societal issues more than government, over 70% of both consumers and employees believe the workplace should avoid politics and respect all views.

Majorities also think companies should avoid any appearance of taking political stances.

However, there was support for businesses encouraging free and fair elections, and providing resources like paid time off for voting.

Narrower minorities backed advocating for issues impacting the company or partnering with civic groups.

Deeply unpopular were endorsing candidates or sponsoring political conventions.

Peter Carson, head of corporate affairs for Weber Shandwick North America, said, “A measured license to lead on societal issues is viewed differently from weighing in during a contentious election.”

The findings suggest Americans see a distinction between weighing in on societal issues and direct involvement in contentious elections.
