Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) is becoming something companies can’t ignore any longer. Candidates can now check an employer's DEI ranking on Glassdoor before they apply for a vacancy, which means DEI is not just internal—it’s part of your public employer brand.
As the workplace becomes increasingly diverse, managing differences in the workplace is a priority. Further, recent events have sparked widespread recognition of the need for change. This has served as a catalyst for organizations to take collective action around internal efforts to increase diversity and inclusion. To adapt and meet the needs of a global workforce, organizations are focusing effort and resources toward diversity initiatives.

Over the past few years, we've seen the national conversation about diversity change as people respond to movements like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter. People increasingly expect their employers to support DE&I initiatives and support an inclusive workplace. One survey found that up to 86% of candidates are more likely to choose an employer that supports diversity. While most companies have a diversity equity and inclusion policy in place, not every office is welcoming to women and minorities. This presents a real challenge for employers. How do you go about creating a respectful workplace? And how do you keep diversity alive on your team?

Employees will be expected to return to the office pre-pandemic style now.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) is not just a moral issue, it’s also a practical one. All data says the same thing: diverse and inclusive companies are more profitable, perform better, and have an easier time attracting recruits.
Helios HR has been helping businesses develop positive cultures for over twenty years now. In that time, we have noticed a change in attitude towards Diversity Equity and Inclusion, or DE&I.
