Benefits of a Diverse Workforce

 

Nowadays it's common to see diversity in the workplace as it brings creativity, innovation, understanding and most importantly better business.

1) Boost creativity and innovation:

Diversity is important in business as it opens up the path to creativity and innovation. Each team member offers a unique set of skills that can be used to solve difficult problems. What if everyone in a workforce were exactly the same? Ideas would be boring and linear, right? With different backgrounds and experiences coming together individuals will have the ability to bounce ideas off each other and create fresh solutions. A diverse environment in the workplace fosters growth and creative thinking benefiting employer, employee and client.   

2) Growth in talent and retention:

According to a survey done by Glassdoor, 2/3rds of job seekers said diversity is an important factor in evaluating where they work. Businesses with a diverse culture end up with a larger talent pool and more choices to hire amazing talent. Keeping future employees happy is essential and making them comfortable with their surroundings will increase retention. A business is inviting to those seeking job opportunities when the workforce and culture is diverse.

3) Improve reputation:

When it comes to owning a business, reputation is everything. In this day and age, is that anyone can pull out their phone, Google your business, and form an opinion all in under 10 seconds. Having a workforce as diverse as your customer base would ensure that your business is welcoming to prospective clients, potential talent, and anyone else out there. This puts your company at an advantage in the market as it shows integrity and ethical business standards. Thus, diversity gives a company the edge when bringing in more business and talent.
