What does it take to create an inclusive workplace?

 
 

Increasing the diversity of your workforce may require some adjustments that go well beyond simply hiring newcomers. It is encouraging to know that the steps you take to create an inclusive workplace will benefit all employees and will help you attract and retain a strong workforce.

Your goal should be to create an environment where people with diverse backgrounds, skills and perspectives feel valued and can contribute to your organization. Keep in mind that diversity encompasses more than just cultural backgrounds – it also reflects gender, age, marital status and other factors.

As steps are taken to create a more diverse workplace, both existing employees and newcomers may be apprehensive. That’s understandable. They will have questions and concerns and you may find that as people adjust, actions or words may cause misunderstandings. This can be the beginning of an opportunity to build new awareness and understanding.
