Harnessing Diversity and Inclusive Businesses to Achieve Superior Performance and Growth
Diversity and Inclusive (D&I) growth works to reduce inequalities in the society, creating economic, personal and professional growth that delivers better quality opportunities for all. D&I also matters in business as drivers for achieving superior performance, revenue growth, motivates employees, fostering competitiveness and innovation. Businesses can reap multiple benefits from nurturing an inclusive and diverse workforce, reach new markets, understand and identify new opportunities for unparalleled growth if they foster inclusive customer bases, products and services, value chains and market channels.
To harness and fully realise D&I in workplace, they must adopt principles of inclusiveness, strategies and models to harness a conducive culture. Diversity does not automatically lead to inclusion. Workplace D&I is about valuing every employee as an individual with differing capabilities. However, D&I remains an empty words in much of corporate businesses. Despite regulatory policies, changing economic landscape and positive growth, most agree the full opportunity has not been realised, remain unchanged or had deepened. Many companies invest in diversity efforts, yet are disappointed with the meagre results. Businesses and professionals face common barriers that are significantly hindering success.
