“Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”
– Verna Myers
Diversity and social justice are reaching new levels within social consciousness and are beginning to significantly influence business decisions. They have also become important factors in how employees and candidates evaluate the attractiveness of employers.
It is no longer fresh insight that companies that focus on fairness and take steps to increase diversity have a better chance of attracting and retaining top talent. And, research has shown positive business outcomes for organizations with diverse workforces, especially those with diversity within their leadership teams.
Diversity and inclusion bring quantifiable impact. Research shows that the business advantages of inclusion are:
- 39% increase in customer satisfaction
- 22% increase in productivity
- 27% increase in profitability
- 22% decrease in employee turnover
Organizations with inclusive leaders are 70% more likely to have captured a new market in the past 12 months.
For D&I interventions to be truly effective, a focus on both people and processes is needed. Only then can systemic bias and inequity be removed in all talent programs, practices, policies, and protocols. Our approach for supporting organizations with these process changes is underpinned by five core principles:
Thinking about cultural nuances all around the world.
Providing individuals with personalized information about their underlying characteristics that lead to inclusive behaviors.
Taking a holistic, integrated approach to building an inclusive culture – that starts at the top.
Using allyship as a framework to inclusive leadership development and behavior modeling across the organization to effect change.
Showing commitment to action by setting goals and measuring progress.
The concepts of diversity and inclusion have always underpinned everything we do: striving for equal opportunities and embracing differences is in our DNA as organizational psychologists. This means every time we design or use an assessment, or build a talent process, diversity and fairness are our goals. For you, this means absolute confidence that you’re hiring and developing your workforce with D&I at the heart of your processes.
Capture, our innovative and highly visual assessment, evaluates how well candidates’ values align to your organizational values. Specialized Diversity and Inclusion values within Capture mean you can target a more diverse applicant pool.
Use our unique tool, Perspectives, to measure behaviors that underpin an individual’s capacity to behave fairly, inclusively, and respectfully. We can support your selection processes with expertise in Adverse Impact Analysis, Assessor Training, and Competency Design.
