Today, the workplace is a melting pot of diverse races, cultures, values, beliefs, behaviours and languages.
"Diversity and Inclusion Go Hand-In-Hand"
How are diversity and inclusion different then? Diversity is the who, what and about the ways which employees are unique and different from each other in an organisation. Inclusion, on the other hand, is about how we act. It is about recognising, respecting, valuing and leveraging diversity in a way that enhances one's perspective or point of view.
It is a fact that employees of all backgrounds who feel welcome and supported in bringing their authentic selves to work are more engaged, productive and committed to an organisation's mission and goals. In this regard, diversity and inclusion initiatives within organisations should form part of an overall business strategy to ensure its long-term sustainability.
