Diversity and inclusion is critical to driving success and building a workforce for the future. It impacts the way you, as employers and leaders, attract, retain and develop exemplary people. Diverse ideas, experiences, backgrounds and perspectives enrich every organization’s ability to innovate and thrive in an evolving competitive marketplace.
Our research indicates that inclusivity continues to improve business results worldwide, but equality is far from today’s reality. To be successful in the new economy, no business can afford to wait any longer to diversify their workforce. Building an inclusive workforce for the future requires:
- Data and analytics that underlie and support all of the decisions being made to advance equality;
- Courageous leadership at all levels of the organization committed to elevating minorities in the workplace;
- Holistic coordination and linkages across all aspects of the change effort to ensure the organization accelerates progress.
The dialogue about workplace diversity continues to draw worldwide attention. Pay disparities, the valorization of minorities in the labour market, and the necessity of guaranteeing equal opportunities for all is at the forefront of the conversation. Mercer invests in understanding the value of diversity through our work on Diversity and Inclusion After Davos as well as When Women Thrive. Building an environment to support and nurture all people is more than a priority, it must be a business imperative.
