Are You an Advocate for a Diverse Workforce?

The workforce is rapidly changing. It’s now compromised of different cultures, genders, and generations. This diverse workforce is what drives innovation and collaboration for an organization. An organization that does not value diversity won’t sustain a fruitful and energizing work environment.

Diversity is defined as “the quality or state of having many different forms, types, ideas, etc.” The many different forms of people at an organization accelerates its advancement as an industry leader. This article from Business Insider discusses the importance of diversity in the workplace, and the idea of “thought diversity.” This concept encourages maintaining a variety of thinkers in the workplace to help avoid “groupthink, a dangerous tendency in groups to focus first and foremost on group conformity, often at the expense of making good decisions.” The article suggests thought diversity motivates ingenuity, teamwork, and improves productivity.

Companies that value diversity encourage collaboration and appreciate input from employees. This encouragement is what builds a more rewarding and beneficial work environment – plus a more efficient and profitable business. Mastery offers four new training courses to help promote and understand diversity at your workplace. Use these courses to educated leaders in the company to be advocates in having a diverse workforce:
