Transforming enterprises through diversity and inclusion
One-in-four people do not feel valued at work, and those who do are mostly in senior positions, according to a new report launched by the International Labour Organization. High levels of equality, diversity and inclusion are associated with greater innovation, productivity and performance, talent recruitment and retention, and workforce well-being. However, the report’s survey found that only half of respondents said that diversity and inclusion were sufficiently identified and resourced in their workplaces’ culture and strategy. Only a third of enterprises currently measure inclusion, although doing so is essential for progress.
