So, why is Diversity Important in the Workplace?

A diverse workplace is characterized by a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. This in turn creates a more innovative, creative, and solution-oriented team. Did you know that according to a study done by Fit Small Business on DEI In the workplace, it was found that companies focused on DEI are 2.6x more likely to engage and retain the workforce and 4.3x more likely to create a sense of belonging (Beasley, 2021)?. By fostering an environment that values and respects different opinions, businesses can tap into a wide assortment of ideas and insights that would otherwise go unheard.
