Diversity & Inclusion Podcast-Love Business
Workplace Diversity Solutions recently took part in a diversity and inclusion podcast interview for Love Business.
Promoting and supporting equality and diversity in the workplace has moved way beyond being a simple box-ticking exercise. Ensuring that you consider all aspects of diversity and inclusion within your business is critical to growth and success.
Diversity and inclusion is a fundamental part of good business management. It’s about creating an inclusive culture in which everyone within your organisation is valued as an individual and feels able to contribute, achieve their potential and, ultimately, make a difference.
In October 2010, The Equality Act was introduced, this legal framework covers the 9 protected characteristics of age, race, disability, religion and belief, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, marriage civil partnership, gender reassignment and sex. It is vital that businesses and organisations consider their obligations under the law.
If a business is looking to fully reap the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace, firms must go beyond this compliance threshold and embrace the principles which will lead to a happy, harmonious and highly-engaged workforce which represents the broadest cross-section of society. Taking a long term strategic approach to diversity and inclusion that is supported by senior leaders is key.
In this diversity & inclusion podcast interview, we share some insights on how businesses can get started with the diversity agenda, some of the critical factors for success and direct you to some free resources
