WHY INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY MAKE MORE BUSINESS SENSE THAN YOU REALIZE

This week, Chairman and Managing Director for Accenture in India Rekha M. Menon published a LinkedIn blog post on the vital importance of diversity and inclusion for improving a company’s bottom line. Writes Ms. Menon:

“At this interesting juncture of evolving business dynamics, a diverse workforce is at the helm of organizational performance and profitability.  Today, inclusion and diversity have emerged from being merely a matter of compliance to a key driver of productivity. Gone are the days when inclusion meant ticking a box; it is now a significant value driver for the best business outcome. And rightly so. There has been a need for organizations to move the needle on its most important asset – its people.”

Ms. Menon identifies five major benefits of diversity and inclusion:

  1. More creative, innovative, smarter output and informed decision-making
  2. Stronger employee engagement
  3. Increased profitability
  4. Enhanced brand value
  5. A more diverse customer base

Accenture is a WEConnect International corporate member.
