Diversity and inclusion has become a very important topic over the years. It encompasses a variety of themes that are focused on respecting and valorizing one another regardless ethnicity, religion, race, and cultural differences. The importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace brings benefits not only for the company, but also for its employees.
Research has indicated that organizations that cultivate an inclusive and diverse environment are more open to business innovations, opportunities, and stronger practices. According to Forbes, “companies that build a truly inclusive culture are those that will outperform their peers.” As a result, an increase in productivity, collaboration, and respect are built among employees.
Whether it is through decision making, hiring process, employees evaluations, or everyday actions, embracing diversity and inclusion in the workplace will push companies to next level.
