We know that inclusion, diversity and belonging (IDB) concepts are important to you. They are important to candidates, too.
Having an inclusive workplace is the right thing to do, of course. However, a strong focus on inclusion, diversity and belonging is a proven business imperative, in addition to a moral one.
The top and bottom line impact of a diverse workforce and inclusive culture are both real and significant. The retention benefits start immediately: at places where employees can bring their whole selves to work, they are 42% less likely to leave their jobs within their first year. When employees feel seen and heard, walls come down, creating much needed space for meaningful collaboration, healthy debate and energy for innovation.
IDB maximizes profitability, increases employee engagement, and is essential to recruiting because it’s important to candidates. They also want to know what you’re doing to create an inclusive and equitable workplace.
