The benefits of having a diverse employee base—in race, ethnicity, gender, ability, age, religion, veteran status, work styles, and experience—include becoming an employer of choice, enhanced creativity, and increased idea generation. A diverse employee base brings more knowledge, perspectives, and experience to the company, helping it appeal to an increasingly global customer base. Better ideas also ensure an organization’s survival in a highly competitive business environment. Moreover, an encouraging and supportive atmosphere in the workplace enables companies to hire and retain highly competent employees.
The business case for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is related to growth in market share and the return on investment (ROI) for companies. Typically, companies and organizations with best-in-class D&I programs and leadership prove a better ROI and outperform in the stock market than those without one.
As more and more workplaces begin to understand the business case and the value of investing in DEI efforts, they must also clarify their organization’s definition of success to better gauge the value of this work. To best measure the ROI for your DEI efforts, it’s essential to establish metrics that help determine if and how the proverbial cultural needle is moving.
During this workshop, we will provide you with the tools to create DEI metrics specific to your organization, which will allow each company to maximize their DEI initiatives and become a differentiator in your industry.
The cost of the workshop is $450. Snacks will be provided.
