The first question that typically arises when organizations consider creating a diverse
and inclusive workplace is “why?”. Fortunately, the answer is clear: investing in a diverse
team is good for both businesses and for people.
Diversity and inclusion (D&I) has been an important part of human resources in the last two decades, but only recently has it evolved from a “nice to have” initiative to an imperative business strategy. WorkWithUs has put together a whitepaper PDF that can help your organization kickstart implementing and building a D&I culture in your work environment.
- Why is diversity and inclusion important for your organization?
- Is your recruitment and hiring selection process fair for all applicants?
- Are you able to provide accommodations for employees in the workplace?
- Does your workplace meet occupational health and safety regulations for persons with disabilities?
- Is your staff educated on multicultural sensitivity, including cultural differences?
Data shows that the benefits to individuals, communities, and economies are clear: organizations
with inclusive cultures have employees that are six times more likely to be innovative, three
times as likely to be high-performing in their work, eight times more likely to achieve better
business outcomes, and two times as likely to meet or exceed financial targets in the workplace.
In today’s competitive and innovative-driven economy, it’s more important than ever for companies and organizations to talk about, plan for, and further implement programs that encourage diversity in the hiring process, and inclusion practices in the workplace.
WorkWithUs helps companies and organizations that are interested in implementing more diversity and inclusion processes in the workplace, especially when it comes to hiring practices and accessing a diverse talent pool.
