There are a lot of studies available showing the benefits of having a diverse and inclusive workforce. In the past year we have definitely identified more and more organizations working on their D&I agenda.
Leading organizations are no longer focusing on achieving success in their D&I programs through #diversity numbers, since they understand it takes more to enact meaningful change. These organizations are able to move beyond the numbers by:
➡️ Using data to determine their starting point
➡️ Implementing easy to grasp metrics to assess progress
➡️ Accelerating awareness and support for D&I policies
➡️ Shifting their focus to building inclusion programs
People are the heart of a company. A thriving organization translates into happy employees who deliver greater productivity and profitability, thus enabling the growth of the business. However, it is not always easy to know what’s really going on inside a company.
Meaningful data can reveal the main issues, so action can be taken to work on the root cause and progress can be measured over time. This approach focuses on a culture of continuous improvement and yields sustainable results.
Isn’t it time to move beyond tick-the-box exercises and start embedding real #change?
