With the help of BPM’s DEIB Consulting Services, this vision can be a reality. Together, we’ll help your company create genuine, lasting change.

The need for DEIB initiatives

According to recent Gallup studies, only 24% of employees say their company cares about their well-being, less than half feel respected at work and only 35% are confident that their organization will make ethical decisions. This has repercussions for organizations that may struggle to attract and retain top talent, connect with a diverse customer base, and promote creative thinking.

Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) is an essential framework for organizations that want to create a more inclusive, fair and engaging workplace culture:

  • Diversity means having a mix of people from different backgrounds, cultures and experiences.
  • Equity means making sure all employees have what they need to succeed, even if it means giving different support to different people.
  • Inclusion is making sure everyone feels welcome and valued for who they are and aims to remove any unconscious or implicit bias.
  • Belonging ties these elements together by instilling the feeling in employees that they are an important part of the group or team.

Employees benefit through a more inclusive workplace where they feel valued and understood. Organizations benefit by tapping into a wider range of talents, perspectives and ideas, leading to enhanced creativity, better problem-solving and improved overall performance.

In short, DEIB fosters a more dynamic and adaptable workforce, capable of meeting the challenges of the future.

The power of DEIB in the workplace

Making DEIB a priority is not only the right thing to do; it’s also a smart business move. Done well, it creates engaged, motivated employees who bring their best because they’re proud to work for you. Done poorly — or not done at all — can cost you talented people who either leave for other organizations or never apply to your organization in the first place.

The benefits of embracing DEIB include:

  • Bigger talent pool. Sourcing done right. DEIB efforts help attract more job candidates from a wider range of backgrounds. This gives organizations further opportunities to hire talented people with a range of perspectives, skills and experiences, all of which are crucial to innovation and growth.
  • Improved performance. Research shows that companies with diverse workforces often do better financially. This is due to having a greater range of skills, perspectives and experiences. These enrich the organization’s capabilities and directly influence its growth and success.
  • Higher retention rates. When employees feel valued and included, they’re more likely to stay for the long term. This reduces recruitment and training costs while helping you maintain a cohesive, experienced team.
  • Wider audience. Embracing diversity within an organization naturally leads to a better understanding of different market segments. This understanding can translate into products, services and marketing strategies that appeal to a wider audience.
  • Happier customers and clients. A diverse team can better understand and connect with different kinds of customers — and customers who see themselves reflected in the employees and values of a company are more likely to reward you with high retention rates and positive word-of-mouth.
  • Better problem-solving. Diverse voices bring a variety of perspectives to the table, helping teams approach challenges from different angles and develop innovative solutions. This diversity of thought helps keep an organization adaptable and competitive.
