Diversity & Inclusion: An Essential Business Strategy


INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY

Research has proven that diverse workforces outperform homogenous workforces and more gender equal offices generate greater revenue.


LEGISLATIVE MANDATES

Governments are implementing laws and regulations that promote gender equality and diversity, including gender quotas, pay transparency, and 'comply or explain' measures.


EVOLVING WORKPLACES

Many aspects of human activity can be, and are being, automated. Your human capital is valuable for its creativity, and it is creative if it is diverse.

Industry leaders around the world are making diversity strategies an integral part of their growth planning.


Strength lies in differences, not similarities.
— Stephen Covey

Your people aren't the problem.

Your organizational infrastructure is preventing you
from achieving the diversity you need for long term growth. 

 

On Implicit Bias


the fact is, we are all biased

Implicit biases influence hiring and promotion practices,
they manifest in organisational structures and even shape physical environments.



implicit biasEs sabotage productivity

You don't access 100% of the talent pool, you don't hire the best applicant, you promote the wrong employee, you miss opportunities for growth.



de-biasing people is hard

In the US, 9 billion dollars is spent on diversity programs every year. There is little evidence to suggest this approach is successful.


 

We partner with organizations to optimize talent management and increase diversity by implementing research-based, systematic design changes proven to de-bias procedures, policies and environments.
