DIVERSITY

Why diversity is the key to a great workplace

Blog - Image - Great workplaces stand out from the crowd

Great workplaces stand out from the crowd. Organisations that embrace and promote diversity develop a positive reputation in the market, attract more staff and have happier customers.

 

“A diverse workforce with a range of different backgrounds and perspectives...makes good business sense,” the Australian Human Rights Commission. 

 

Diversity delivers real benefits

 

  • A workforce made up of people with different backgrounds and qualifications is one better equipped for problem solving
  • In a workplace where people are keen to learn from each other and to share ideas, staff are more engaged. Research from the a future that works campaign shows that 82% of Australian workers see a culture of engagement as a key factor in promoting wellbeing at work
  • People with different work and life experiences are likely to share personal stories, build a greater sense of connection to each other and develop a culture of learning from each other

 

Converge International clients can read their Monthly Materials emails for more detail on how embracing diversity helps you to build a great workplace.
