Remove unconscious bias from business processes and create an environment of real inclusion where employees feel valued, able to be themselves and perform to their full potential while boosting company profits.
About the book: A diverse workforce is a business imperative. Without it, companies are made up of employees who come from the same background and have the same skills and, therefore, the same blind spots. A diverse workforce brings together different strengths, a variety of experiences, a huge breadth of knowledge and myriad creative problem-solving techniques. However, in order to leverage the benefits of this diverse workforce, businesses must be inclusive. Inclusion ensures that employees feel supported, are treated fairly and are therefore happier, more engaged and more productive. This not only improves staff wellbeing but also boosts company performance. Building an Inclusive Organization is a practical guide to creating an environment of real inclusion. It highlights how to remove unconscious bias from company processes including recruitment and selection, how to make the case for diversity and inclusion to all stakeholders and how to embed inclusion into an organization’s culture and overall business strategy.
