Top quartile companies for diversity were found to be more likely to financially outperform industry medians than bottom quartile companies for gender diversity (by 16%) and ethnic diversity (by 35%) (McKinsey & Company, 2017). Workplace diversity is far more than just a moral issue. Organisations can harness the difference in people to help them become more successful, more innovative, more skilled and better able to cater to their diverse clients’ needs. However, putting steps in place to build a diverse workforce is not enough. So what can you do?
