Diversity and Inclusion: Driving Sustainable Change in the Workplace
CTA’s inaugural Diversity & Inclusion white paper reveals that diversity and inclusion is highly important in the workplace. It drives employee productivity and performance, fosters creativity and innovation, bolsters employee engagement, improves decision-making, widens the talent pool, reduces employee turnover, and ultimately drives innovation and profitability. As such, organizations are deploying a variety of different efforts aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace, with heavy focus being placed on recruitment, training, and development initiatives directed towards historically underrepresented groups. However, our research also reveals that while great progress has been made in advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace, there is still considerable work to be done to ensure a diverse and inclusive workplace for all.
