Diversity and Inclusion
Inclusion produces happier employees.
When everyone feels included, morale goes up. This leads to higher satisfaction and empowerment within the organisation that will radiate throughout.
The culture of the workplace environment becomes innovative. In homogeneous workplaces, the culture is going to remain the same. But within an inclusive workforce, there is a culture that promotes new growth and a diverse way of thinking; it produces and environment of ingenuity.
You have a more educated, well-versed workbase. By creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, you are bringing a wealth of knowledge into the room; including those who might otherwise not be a part of the conversation. Fresh new perspectives will allow for an organisation to overcome new challenges and provide innovation.
When ideas from employees are heard, they are more motivated to come together and outperform most other teams by 35% according to research by McKinsey & Co.
Diversity means nothing if you do not include the voices of all your workforce. Ensure that you are practicing inclusion alongside diversity to reap the full benefits.
