Guest Blog by Elise Ambrose, President of Elite Personnel
Embracing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) is not just the right thing to do, it is also an integral component of organizational success. Organizations with diverse workforces have access to broader perspectives, increased innovation, expanded market share, and a wider pool of talent.
As a nation of diverse backgrounds (race, religion, national origin, gender) employees bring different viewpoints, priorities, expertise, and knowledge to the workplace regardless of whether they are regular full-time employees or part of a contingent workforce. Organizations also stand to gain and prosper from the aggregation of these multifaceted attributes. Narrow demographics leads to a narrow point of view, a narrow body of knowledge, and a narrow perspective of how people work.
