Employers are increasingly coming to recognise the strong business case for improving the level of diversity and inclusion within their workforce and across all levels of their senior leadership. A more diverse and inclusive workforce delivers higher levels of engagement, creativity and innovation.
Latest research carried out by McKinsey on why diversity matters, found that companies in the top quartile for gender or racial and ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians. Companies in the bottom quartile in these dimensions are statistically less likely to achieve above-average returns. And diversity is probably a competitive differentiator that shifts market share toward more diverse companies over time.
Recruiting professionals from a range of backgrounds at all levels of seniority, businesses gain access to a wide variety of viewpoints and perspectives. Companies with staff from a broad range of backgrounds have been found to outperform firms with a less diverse workforce.
