Diversity & Inclusion at a Glance
The bottom line on diversity:
Organizations that promote a culture of inclusiveness experience an enhanced bottom line from increased client satisfaction, productivity, profits, employee engagement and retention. Additionally, companies have demonstrated sustainable competitive advantages through generational alignment with their client base - customer responsiveness increases when the workforce culturally reflects customers. And if that’s not enough, the workplace of the future will exhibit an increasingly diverse and shrinking labor pool, requiring your organization to be the “employer of choice” to attract the best talent.
It’s about inclusion:
The focus of companies today has shifted from diversity to a focus on inclusion and engagement. Rather than focusing on diversity as a legal mandate, companies focus on inclusiveness because it is the right thing to do; moreover, they understand that it benefits the organization and its clients.
What’s the benefit to you?
Many diversity initiatives have not lived up to their intended goals, becoming just another “plan on the shelf”. A culture of inclusion results from an ingrained process that instills a high regard for the talents of others. It balances the needs of the organization and the work force, ultimately leading to more innovative results. Organizations that succeed in their inclusiveness efforts realize higher productivity, increased engagement, and gain a reputation as an employer of first choice.
Why hire a consultant?
It can be challenging for an organization to evaluate their own inclusiveness efforts and to fully appreciate areas where they may have bias. A consultant can help plan, manage and assess a Diversity and Inclusion initiative by providing guidance to initiate a program, gather information, deliver education and coaching, and evaluate overall effectiveness and progress.
