This study used data from a survey of patients with cancer to examine how patients’ unconscious bias and support by managers in the workplace affect their satisfaction with work style after receiving a cancer diagnosis. The results yielded three factors of unconscious bias: pessimistic, subjective, and optimistic factors. Pessimistic factors were associated with lower levels of satisfaction, whereas subjective factors were associated with increased satisfaction. In addition, understanding and support from managers were associated with increased satisfaction with work style after a cancer diagnosis. Therefore, one’s satisfaction with work style after receiving a cancer diagnosis relies on managing one’s unconscious bias, especially pessimistic factors.
