For Companies

Does Your Company keep up with the progress?

The diversity plan has gone from being a necessary piece of paper to an important document securing the future of the company.

The sooner Your Company starts with concrete actions, the more likely it is to become the winner of tomorrow.

The time has come; Think differently - Think right!

All analysis, statistics and research show that both companies and society are gaining from diversity. A prerequisite to achieve diversity is to create an inclusive work environment which recognizes the different individuals, gives them the mandate and space needed to enable them to work effectively and delivery fully. Many believes that diversity is only about employing people with different cultural background, different sexual orientation or individuals with a disability. This is certainly a start to diversity, but it’s so much more.

Are You having doubts if Your Company needs to take actions in Diversity and Inclusion?

Even if You feel satisfied with Your current situation, we’d recommend You to consider the following:

 

  • The world is constantly changing and the speed of change is accelerating; -- Do you have a mindset and procedures in your company which ensures that your products and services are attractive to your customers today as well as to the customers in the future?
  • Increased competition demands the best employees; -- Are you absolutely sure that you by default don’t opt out 30% of the recruitment base?
  • Tougher competition requires more of a company in order to reach the growth and profitability targets; -- Are you absolutely certain that you don’t automatically opt out 30% of your customer base?
  • All businesses need new employees/rejuvenation; -- Have you evaluated if the new internet generation considers your company to be an attractive workplace?
  • Just like actions in regards to environment and CSR have become a norm and are often required to become an approved supplier, there is now increasing demands on companies in regards to diversity; -- Does your Company meet the demands of today and tomorrow?
  • Companies can’t afford to stand still because then they immediately fall behind; -- Diversity creates creativity. Other possibilities are considered since there’re no longer a limit of conventional thinking or set routines. Can your company afford to not do this?

 

If You’ve answered no to one or more of the questions above, then we recommend You to consider taking actions in diversity and inclusion. You’re welcome to contact us at Mångfaldsakademien for an initial meeting where we can discuss further.
