Our consultancy and training is a valuable investment for our customers. These are a few reasons why;
Social media transparency
In today’s world of social media, organisational culture is constantly under a public microscope. Employer reviews are being given more weight by potential candidates on job comparison websites. Current and former employees are also more likely to post about their experiences on social media, which can either attract new talent or prevent the talent from applying.
Business to business
With more businesses focusing heavily on D&I and building that into their business ethos, there is growing evidence that they prefer to do business with those that share their values. This can prove crucial for winning contracts and maintaining your competitive edge.
People who feel included and empowered in the workplace are more likely to remain your long-term employees. A D&I program can help keep your employees within your own organisation, and represents far better value than replacing lost talent.
Diversity and inclusion training can encourage people to bring their ‘full self’ to work. Those who are comfortable with one-another in the workplace are more likely to exercise good will and become a more productive member or their team. They are also more willing to share their viewpoints when problem solving, bringing diverse solutions to diverse problems.
Stronger leadership pipeline
When leadership teams show an appreciation for diversity and inclusion, their workers are more likely to see those leadership positions as viable promotion opportunities. This is especially true if they are from under-represented diversity groups within the workforce.
Knowledge is key, and knowing who your customers really are on an individual level is vital. A workforce that understands diversity and inclusion is more likely to provide a better standard of customer service to their diverse customer base.
Avoiding costly mistakes
Employees, customers, and business opportunities can be lost due to diversity and inclusion issues in the workplace. This can be more costly when you're not even aware it's happening. Our training can help plug the knowledge gap and educate against these kinds of mistakes.
Maximising millennial talent
The millennial generation (those born between 1981 and 1996) now form the largest part of the working population. They are typically managed by on older generation within the workplace, but often require a unique (and often misunderstood) style of leadership. Understanding your millennial employees through diversity and inclusion training will help your organisation unlock their full value.
Developing your competitive edge
Empirical studies prove that diverse and inclusive businesses outperform their non-diverse, non-inclusive rivals in terms of profit. D&I training is therefore a worthwhile investment for any organisation to make, especially in the competitive marketplace.
