Working in a vacuum isn’t a good thing for anyone. If you don’t get out of your box you can’t possibly understand lots of different customers’ points of view. You may not understand how someone from a different background reacts to a product or service that you’re offering. You have to know that so that you’re not offending someone or misrepresenting something, too.
And if you don’t have a diverse, inclusive workplace you can’t do that. And without an inclusive workforce, your employees and your company will suffer, too. Not only can you respond to other people, but you can be more attractive to potential employees as well — most of them consider it an attraction for a job.
One of the best ways to do this is for a company to not only set a policy to do this, but set goals as well. Need more ideas? The below graphic helps.
