Inclusivity Attracts Top Talent
DEIB is under attack. Let’s arm ourselves with data to show how it’s good for the bottom line, and not just the right thing to do.
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests that inclusive cultures can attract top talent to organizations.
A report from Glassdoor found that job seekers are increasingly looking for employers that prioritize diversity and inclusion. The report found that 67% of job seekers said that a diverse workforce was an important factor when considering job offers, while 57% said that they wanted to work for a company that had a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.
A survey by Deloitte found that companies with more inclusive cultures were more likely to attract and retain top talent from diverse backgrounds. The survey found that 80% of respondents said that they would be more likely to join a company that had a strong diversity and inclusion program, while 72% said that they would be more likely to stay with a company that had a diverse and inclusive culture.
A study published in the Harvard Business Review found that companies with more diverse workforces were better able to attract top talent from diverse backgrounds. The study found that companies with strong diversity and inclusion programs were more likely to attract candidates who were looking for a workplace where they would feel valued and supported.
These studies suggest that inclusive cultures can be a major factor in attracting top talent to organizations.
By creating an environment where all employees feel valued and supported, organizations can increase their competitiveness and better reflect the diverse communities they serve.
