Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is an integral part of any organisation. It can make or break the business. This is because the core foundation of any organisation is its workforce – simply put it is the most valuable asset and influences its core existence. The more you demonstrate you value your people, the more successful you will be.
Organisations need to allocate the required resources and training in order to attract the right employees with the best minds and skills. In today’s war for talent, this may require you to look beyond the traditional recruitment pool. This is what we mean by diversity in the workplace.
The onset of globalisation has led to a demographic shift, with increased mobility in migrant workers travelling to the four corners of the globe for career progression, and the need for a talented and skilled workforce resulting in diversity becoming a key driver in economic growth across the world.
The benefits of a diverse workforce not only provides social harmony at work for the employees, but also increases productivity and profitability that will help the organisation to succeed in the global marketplace.
