It’s really that simple – diversity drives business revenues and profitability!
A study by McKinsey revealed that Companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35 per cent more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians.
While companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15 per cent more likely to have financial returns above their respective national industry medians.
Diversity does indeed pay off! With top executives highly aware of it themselves. But the real question is, how do companies successfully hire and attract a diverse talent pool?
Here are ten top tips to improve diversity in your organisation.
- Make diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) part of your core company values
- Analyse your workforce – how diverse is your talent pool at the moment?
