How many companies have efficient Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DI&E) policies in place that make a long-lasting difference across all levels? – That mostly depends on the size of an organization.
For instance, 60 percent of businesses with under 50 employees have no diversity initiatives at all. On the other side, 55 percent of companies with between 5000 and 10,000 hires have structured DI&I practices.
Yet, the positive change can only be enduring when all organizations, regardless of their size, have effective inclusive programs. But at the moment, 41 percent of managers state they’re too busy to implement any diversity and inclusion initiatives.
As long as that’s the case, preferential treatment, bias, and segregation will hinder inclusive recruitment, workplaces, and impartiality. There shouldn’t be any pretexts for why a company is failing to drive inclusion.
DI&E initiatives integration is challenging, but it’s essential as it ensures everyone gets an equal chance. The path towards fostering unbiased recruitment and diverse values starts with assessing how inclusive your workplace is.
