Inclusion used to Create a Competitive Advantage

July 16th, 2018 · No Comments

In various work activities and in the execution of job duties, there is a myriad of opportunities to leverage the existing diversity of the organization to enhance the development of solutions to solve everyday business challenges.


Inclusion used to Create a Competitive Advantage
By Warren Cook

Over the past few decades, organizations have repeatedly asked me to “bring them diversity” and help them improve how they are viewed by the workforce and rest of the world. The request is fundamentally wrong and the strategy to enhance the workforce and create both ROI and a competitive advantage remain in an inclusion strategy.

Inclusion is the act of being inclusive, to include others. In various work activities and in the execution of job duties, there is a myriad of opportunities to leverage the existing diversity of the organization to enhance the development of solutions to solve everyday business challenges.

I encourage business leaders and human resource professionals to step back and analyze their current practices and approach to Diversity & Inclusion, and instead formulate a new strategy that does not focus on creating the diversity that already exists, but instead focuses on the development of programs that involve and include members of the workforce in creative and innovative ways to use their diverse characteristics as a competitive advantage.

If after reading this short article on this topic you are asking yourself “How can we turn inclusion into ROI and a competitive advantage”, then it is time to call me to schedule training for you and your leadership team on Creating ROI from Diversity and Inclusion.
