Creating A Truly Diverse And Inclusive Workplace

Research from McKinsey has found that companies in the top quartile of gender or racial and ethnic diversity are expected to have more financial return above national medians.

Many companies today are working to get ahead of issues before they experience poor publicity by holding discussions on inclusion and more. But more must be done in order to create a work atmosphere that truly is both inclusive and engaging.

For one, senior leaders should set an example for their employees through their behavior, language and emphasize workplace inclusivity. Change starts from the top down.

Understanding employees with various backgrounds is vital to creating an inclusive workplace. This can be done by running anonymous surveys, one-on-one meetings, focus groups and more that gives leaders more clarity on workers and their challenges.

According to the Institute for the Future, cross-cultural competency was named one of the top 10 most important skills for the future workforce. This means leaders need to understand their own blind spots, open a clear communication channel, ask questions and try to get a full understanding of their workers.

By showing employees that you are taking into account what they say, they are more inclined to trust you and be satisfied in their position. To build that sort of connection among the rest of your workers, encourage activities that bring people together and discuss business values to make sure everyone is on the same page.
