07 Jul Celebrating Diversity At The Workplace
The world is witnessing a greater flow of goods, services and people between nations than at any other time in history thanks to globalization.
From fresh products delivered to our doorsteps from far flung corners of the globe to the accessibility of once only dreamed of locations thanks to affordable flights, the world is far more integrated than ever before.
This shrinking of the globe has fostered a shift in mindset, one in which individuals are more open, conscientious, demanding and dynamic.
As far as brands are concerned, it means there is a greater level of understanding and creativity in demand to meet the needs of consumers, who have a shorter attention span, are far less loyal, and far more discerning than ever before, which means that the workforce is in a great need of diversity.
Diversity allows managers to benefit from a multitude of experiences and perspectives, which can inspire and encourage inventiveness and creative solutions to complex problems, all the while fueling innovation.
