What is diversity management and why is it important?

Diversity management encompasses all strategies and measures that are used in companies and organizations to create an inclusive work environment. This includes:

  • promoting a diverse workforce in terms of gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, abilities, and other characteristics
  • creating an environment where all employees feel welcome, valued, and respected, and can reach their full potential
  • eliminating barriers and disadvantages to provide all employees with fair development and career opportunities

Why does diversity management matter?

Studies show that diverse teams bring different perspectives and experiences to the table, which can lead to more creative solutionsbetter decision-making, and higher innovation. Employees will feel welcome and valued in an inclusive environment which increases their loyalty to the company and enhances the employer branding as well.
