A diverse workforce is more than just a nice-to-have. It is a strategic imperative that improves innovation, enhances perspectives, increases adaptability, and drives financial and organizational performance.
According to Deloitte, an inclusive workforce is ‘two times as likely to meet or exceed financial targets, three times as likely to be high performing, six times as likely to be innovative and agile, and eight times more likely to achieve better business outcomes.’ Similarly, McKinsey found that companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to have higher financial return above their respective national industry medians.
As organizations realize the correlation between a more diverse workforce and organizational performance, many are actively adopting formal Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) recruitment marketing initiatives that go beyond compliance requirements to ensure they prioritize diversity candidates as a strategic audience.
