The reputation and growth of your business are two goals worth pursuing. However workplace diversity is an equally important goal that yields many tangible and immediate benefits that impact the bottom line of your firm.
Here are top 5 benefits of having a more diverse organisational culture:
- An assortment of different perspectives
- More innovation
In a diverse work culture, employees have access to multiple worldviews and perspectives. When these views combine, the door to innovation opens up.
- Higher employee engagement
- Reduced attrition
Offering equal opportunities is beneficial for employee retention. Companies with greater diversity are more inclusive of individual perspectives and characteristics. This causes employees to feel more accepted and valued. Since they have greater acceptance, they are happier as well and wish to continue longer with the organisation. This reduces employee attrition rates.
- Positive branding and recognition
