The Inclusive Organisation

Is it important to your success that all your employees are included and the specific needs of all your current and potential customers are met?

How do you know if all your employees are included and if you are meeting the specific needs of all your current and potential customers?

Do you have a way to measure the inclusion of your employees and how you meet the specific needs of all your current and potential customers?

Let us help you measure the indicators of inclusion for your organisation; because if you can measure it, you can track it, and then you can fix it.

Building an inclusive organisation isn’t just beneficial; it’s a major factor of success in the modern business landscape. Organisations that seek, celebrate, and embrace diversity will have several very real advantages over their competitors. But we must be clear this is not just about building a diverse workforce. In order to benefit from the advantages of diversity and inclusion, your organisation needs to embrace truly inclusive behaviours, and if you are successful in doing so here are just some the benefits…

Capability

Each employee brings a set of skills to the organisation. By its very nature, a diverse workforce provides a diverse set of competencies and capability. The broad set of skills and perspectives of a diverse team provides a greater chance at achieving breakthroughs like new products and services, new markets to address, or new approaches to existing markets.

Culture

Hiring for cultural fit is a popular strategy for organisations, but there's a point at which it becomes a barrier to diversity and growth. A truly diverse organisation will develop an inclusive culture that provides a sturdy foundation as the basis for thriving within an ever-evolving business landscape.

Perspective

One of the greatest advantages of a diverse workplace is the host of perspectives it provides. There are often countless ways to solve a problem, but without varied perspectives, most of those solutions aren't always obvious, or even visible. The more diverse perspectives you can focus on overcoming a particular challenge, the more likely you're going to land on a brilliant, creative solution.

Candidates

This may be one of the most simple, but overlooked benefits of diversity in the workplace. By hiring diverse candidates, an organisation has its pick from a much larger pool of highly talented individuals than an organisation that isn't. That's a huge advantage.

Loyalty

Organisations that ensure they have the conditions in place that facilitate diversity and cultivate inclusion in all aspects of their operations create engaged and productive employees. Employees that feel included and valued yield greater commitment and motivation, translating into increased productivity, and fewer resources spent on employee turnover, grievances and complaints.

Customers

An organisation with a diverse workforce has a huge advantage when addressing constantly evolving markets. A major element of effectively addressing a market is building a relationship with the people within it. Better meet the needs and wants of your consumers by better understanding them. Adapt your products and services to meet their needs. Do that, and you have expanded your potential customer base exponentially.

International Inclusive Benchmark Report

insert image

The Inclusive Foundation annual International Inclusion Benchmark Report covers 54 inclusive indicators, plus financial and human capital measures, to help you see where you rank and how you are tracking toward inclusiveness in your organisation.

As a participant in the benchmark study your organisation will undergo;

An employee survey, employee and customer focus groups (depending on the type and size of your organisation), interviews with key staff, observation of the physical environment, review of documented evidence, and confidential submission of key performance measures. Now that you can measure inclusion, you can track it, and purposefully create it.
