Inclusion. A prevalent topic of today. How do you approach and value these factors as an employer, or employee? Rather than seeing Inclusion as a bullet point to tick off your “should do’s”, why not reap the everlasting rewards of being an inclusive employer?
Inclusion promotes diverse and innovative thinking in the workplace, which thus results in greater success and productivity. In promoting an inclusive and diverse culture, this brings extra knowledge to your team along with alternative, new perspectives.
According to recent surveys, just 53% of businesses actively seek and welcome disabled candidates. And 75% of businesses surveyed say disabled people face barriers when job hunting.
It’s time to stop approaching inclusivity half-heartedly. Promoting inclusion in the workplace is undoubtedly fundamental and should be cemented into every organisation.
