Building diverse teams is of the utmost importance for today’s businesses.
These businesses aren’t just ticking a box, saying the right thing or trying to burnish their brand with a sense of purpose. They’re responding to hard data and a growing body of evidence that shows diversity to be one of the most vital sources of competitive advantage.
However, the evidence is also growing that no business, large or small, can simply decide to be more diverse. As recruitment businesses seek to hire more diverse teams for their clients and for their own organisations, the reality is these initiatives are hard work. Achieving diversity requires deliberate design – and it requires the right types of actionable insights to drive that design.
