Harnessing Diversity And Inclusion To Help Your Business Flourish With Globe Group
Diversity and inclusion are on the radars of businesses all over the world, and not just for the reasons you might imagine. It’s easy to understand the moral imperative behind these cornerstone workplace standards: creating a fair and just work environment in which everyone receives the opportunity to thrive is as logical as it is fundamental! What you might be surprised to discover is that nurturing diversity and inclusion within your business will work wonders for your bottom line.
At Globe Group, we are committed to building a workplace culture that is inclusive, supportive and successful. We’ve learned through experience that diversity within our talented pool of labour hire candidates makes us stronger in a myriad of different ways. We’ve also come to recognize that we can play a vital role in helping the businesses we partner with to cultivate their own diversity and inclusion cultures. Meeting your labour hire needs with Globe Group will give you access to a fantastic array of individuals with different skills, approaches and experiences – all of which can expand the scope of your brand. So, what exactly do these concepts mean, and how will they help to propel your business forward? Let’s explore!
What Do We Mean By Diversity?
A diverse workplace is one that represents the spectrum of traits that society shares as a whole. In the workplace, this is reflected by who is hired, recruited, and promoted. It means extending opportunities to ensure that businesses act as ambassadors for humanity. Gallup defined diversity as “the full spectrum of human demographic differences.” By this, they mean characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and physical ability.
What Do We Mean By Inclusion?
The term inclusion refers to creating a work environment in which every employee can feel valued, safe, and encouraged to participate fully within the company. Together, these two concepts mean bringing together a variety of people that will be able to offer different insights and energies. When a diverse workforce feel included, this is where the magic starts to happen!
Diversity And Inclusion Help You Attract And Retain The Best People
These standards reflect the values of the talented individuals who will be contributing to the success of your business tomorrow. Research from international employer review site Glassdoor revealed that 67% of job seekers consider workplace diversity an important factor when considering a job offer. They also discovered that more than half of employees want the businesses they work for to do more to increase diversity.
Diversity And Inclusion Will Help Your Business Become An Industry Leader
Researchers from the Josh Bersin Academy examined more than 450 companies, all around the world. They found that inclusive companies are 1.7x more likely to be innovators in their field. They concluded that: “Companies that embrace diversity and inclusion in all aspects of their business statistically outperform their peers.”, and went on to give us an insight into why: “When we feel included and respected, our bodies create hormones and healthy energy that raises our performance at work.”
The cohesive nature of diverse and inclusive businesses not only leads to innovation, but to new markets too. Factors such as broad cultural insight and a variety of perspectives might explain why Harvard Business Review found that diverse companies are 70% more likely to report that they captured a new market.
Diversity And Inclusion Will Boost Your Bottom Line
A study from McKinsey found that ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform their competition. In their Why Diversity Matters report, they summarised their conclusions: “More diverse companies, we believe, are better able to win top talent and improve their customer orientation, employee satisfaction, and decision making, and all that leads to a virtuous cycle of increasing returns.”
Meanwhile, Fast Company reported that businesses with thriving gender diversity and inclusion enjoyed being able to outperform their competition by around 50%. Heading back to that Bershin study we touched on earlier for a moment, it was also found that more inclusive companies have a 2.3x higher cash flow per employee over a 3-year period when set against their less inclusive competitors. That’s no small statistic!
