”Diverse companies attract 73.2% more top talent than non-diverse companies”
The greatest challenge for most companies is attracting the right people, the ones who accelerate your business’ growth. The people within the organisation that turn the initial dream into ideas and those ideas into reality.
Therefore we often seek to find people that think the same way we do. People that act the same way we do because we expect them to be the ones believing in our dream. However, too much homogeneity in your company can break your success in the long run. Think of it this way:
If you have 10 people thinking exactly the same, who’s going to come up with that idea that
will 10x your growth?
If you’re all from the same geographic area, who’s going to lead the expansion to a country?
Workplace diversity is an actual competitive advantage rather than just something companies tend to boost about as means of improving their reputation. But how to get started with creating a hiring process, company culture, and a working environment that is diverse & inclusive?
