Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is not only important for fostering a safe, productive, and creative work environment, but according to recent research, it is vital for success. In addition to having several positive impacts on your business, diversity and inclusion in the workplace as well as in your supplier base also positively impacts our society.
So how does diversity and inclusion in the workplace help drive success? According to an article by Forbes magazine in 2020, titled “8 Reasons Why Diversity And Inclusion Are Essential To Business Success”, implementing diversity, inclusion, and equity in business helps to drive productivity, creativity, and create an overall happy and safe work environment. By embracing diversity in your business, you will see a wider range of skills, perspective, thought, and experience that allows for more creative ideas to form. This creates a strong team of diverse individuals who are equally respected and heard, who can work together, each bringing their unique strengths and talents to the table to work towards your goals on a united front.
Working with diverse suppliers and individuals in your business practice not only drives success on the corporate level, but it also benefits each community your suppliers and employees are part of. When you choose to work with a diverse supplier or individuals from diverse communities, the opportunities and success they achieve benefits their communities as a whole. This growth that is fostered within these communities benefits our society by promoting growth, inclusion, and equity. Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is the first step in a chain reaction that benefits all parties involved and promotes success on a large scale.
