Diversity is essential to growth and prosperity of any company: diversity of perspectives, experiences, cultures, genders, and age. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs and most admired leaders will tell you the same thing.
Because diversity breeds innovation. And innovation breeds business success.
Research shows that when human resources channels and harnesses varied skills, specialized competencies and distinctive capabilities of employees of multiple races and minority classes, it results in creative solutions for problems and better organizational productivity. In a world that's more globally connected than ever before, diversity is critical for an organization's ability to innovate and adapt in a fast-changing environment.
Workforce diversity and inclusion is today a key driver of internal innovation and business growth. Research shows that groups of diverse problem solvers can outperform groups of high-ability problem solvers. And companies with diverse executive boards enjoy significantly higher earnings and returns on equity.
Successful companies are not the ones that build a business, then look at diversity as a nice-to-have attribute. Truly successful and innovative companies are those that build diverse teams when they are just starting out and view diversity is a mentality, not just strategic necessity.
