A Glassdoor survey revealed 76% of employees and jobseekers surveyed reported a diverse workforce as an important factor when evaluating job opportunities, a trend that has been increasing year on year.

Movements like Black Lives Matter and #metoo have brought many equality issues to the forefront of our collective consciousness. The impact of a diverse workforce and inclusive leadership goes far beyond the office door. How an organisation structures their workforce, communicates with their employees, and constructs their company cultures can be a driver in changing society-wide inequalities.

The opportunity to have dramatic social influence by creating inclusive workplaces is absolutely a possibility.

A McKinsey report found that diverse companies are now more than ever outperforming their less diverse peers on profitability so if you haven’t already, the time is now to create a robust diversity and inclusion strategy.

The benefits of fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce are mutual for employers and employees alike. Employers will benefit from invaluable diverse thinking, more opportunities for problem solving and accessing larger markets.
