Now more than ever, gender and BIPOC equality, physical accessibility, and a host of other equity concerns are rising to the corporate forefront. A diverse and inclusive employee population – within an equitable work environment – is a necessity for employers.
Organizations with more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces are more adaptable – and more innovative – and have stronger financial performance – than other organizations. Further, the quality of work life for employees is enhanced.
A DEI survey is an essential tool in evaluating where an organization currently stands and in understanding any DEI-related concerns its employees might have.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are all vitally important and each element complements the others:
- Diversity refers to multiple dimensions of variation in the employees who make up an organization, from its leadership team to its front-line employees
- Equity includes fair treatment of all employees and full access for all to opportunities within an organization
- Inclusion represents behaviors that welcome and support diversity and equity
Are you looking to assess, measure, or identify steps to improve DEI in your organization? It’s an important undertaking that must be done in a careful, nuanced manner.
The work requires both a compassionate human understanding of the issues being assessed and measured, along with keen analytic know-how and experience. And because of the sensitivities involved, it typically should be done with third-party assistance, even for those employers with great in-house analytics capabilities.
